Microscopy characterization of coatings
30 July 2020

Coatings have a broad range of applications in industries like pharmaceuticals, automotive, medical devices, textiles, oil and gas, aerospace and defense, food and packaging, and consumer optics, thanks to their role as functional, high- performance or protective materials. This paper illustrates a case study on how optical and confocal microscopy, focused ion beam (FIB), and correlative microscopy are used by ZEISS R&D to make sure new customer demands are met while keeping the quality and great performance of coatings.
