Background of Devzelopment

Industrial microscopes have been utilized for applications such as observation, examination, research, and analysis in a wide variety of fields including semiconductors, flat panel displays, electronic components, and various materials.

In these fields, a diverse range of samples is observed using various microscopic methods where both high optical performance and ease of operation are demanded.

To meet these demands, Nikon has developed the CFI60-2 objective series, which employs phase Fresnel lenses developed using Nikon s own optical technologies to further improve the ease of operation attributed to the optical performance and long working distances, which are highly valued in the existing CFI60 objective series.

Key Features

CFI60-2 objective series for industrial microscopes

Employing Nikon s original phase Fresnel lenses: Phase Fresnel lenses developed using Nikon s own optical technologies are used for the objectives of industrial microscopes. This enables chromatic aberration, which reduces contrast, to be accurately corrected at individual classes, resulting in sharper, clearer images.

Improved basic performance of the standard-type objective series: For the standard-type TU Plan Fluor series objective (for bright-field, dark-field, differential interference, polarization, fluorescence), the performance of chromatic aberration for the middle range magnification (10X and 20X) has been improved, and the basic performance of the entire series has been increased. This makes it possible to obtain sharper, clearer images while maintaining the high NA and long working distances of the existing series.

Reduced weight:The weight of the 50X, 100X, and 150X high magnification objectives has been reduced by approximately 30% compared with existing products.

This has narrowed the weight differences with objectives of other magnification levels, reducing inconveniences in replacing the objectives.
