Global Automated Optical Metrology Market Allows Improved Quality Control and Reduction in Costs and Size

Blog Description

Basic optical metrology allows users to do what mechanical measurement devices usually offer, only at a much higher degree of precision. For instance, optical clocks do the same thing that digital and analog clocks do, but the level of accuracy at which an optical clock can measure a second is much higher than the other two. While that is not needed for common applications, scientific endeavors where the measurement of time needs to be highly accurate will benefit from optical metrology. Metrology, which is the science of measurement, has to be a constantly evolving field, where the accuracy and precision of measurement should only reach higher levels as time progresses. Almost all mechanical industries and many others are dependent on high-quality metrology.

As such, the global automated optical metrology market is gaining momentum. It is exhibiting a CAGR of 7.60% between 2015 and 2021. This market has proven to be of major value to players who have lasted the test of time, such as Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH, Nikon Metrology NV, Hexagon Metrology, Inc., ASML Holding NV, and KLA Tencor Corporation.

Advantage of Automated Optical Metrology

One of the major positive aspects of the global automated optical metrology market is the inherent growth pattern it shows owing to its own set of advantages over conventional metrology. The biggest advantage of optical metrology is that it can help measure objects for which manual measurement is not possible.

Distance from the object is not a major impediment in measuring objects using light, unlike other modes of measurement. The only hindrance to optical metrology is the light or laser getting blocked physically by another object. As long as there is nothing between the source of light and the object, optical metrology can give an accurate answer. And the global automated optical metrology market is not restricted to lasers; there are other modes such as broadband and narrowband that can be used effectively. Once these modes of data propagation return from the object with the relevant information, the receiver will begin crunching the numbers using sophisticated software and advanced algorithms in order to derive the most accurate answers that scientists have been looking for.

Advancements in Automated Optical Metrology

Scientists are confident that optical metrology can help attain developments that were previously unthinkable. For instance, the global automated optical metrology market can offer not only light to measure distance and time, but it can also provide ways to measure the physical nature of the light itself. These measurements are important in understanding design flaws and benefit the overall manufacturing industry in making products increasingly reliable. For now, the uses of optical metrology are being explored in the fields of aerospace, energy, and medical technology.

Even defense bodies are in on the global automated optical metrology market. Researchers from the U.S. Army, for instance, have devised a way to use light measurement in the creation of 3D replicas of any object that has been measured. Such advancements are vital in evolving science towards a new age of research and development. The global automated optical metrology market, with its ability to help measure objects near and far, is thus one of the major fields spearheading modern scientific endeavors.
