Surface profilometer DCM8 Leica Microsystems
The Leica DCM8 surface profilometer combines two types of surface acquisition: interferometry and confocal microscopy. This allows the surface captures with inframicrometric (less than a millionth of meter) resolution in X and Y and at the nanometer (billionth of meter) scale in Z.
The Leica DCM8 allows us to capture dental surfaces at micrometric scale to characterize dental abrasion. This is associated with a treatment and analytic plateform including different software such LeicaMap, Toothfrax, and Sfrax, allowing to quantify and compare the surface descriptive parameters. Applications on non-biological material such tool stone, plastic or metallic tools are possible as well.
