Line confocal sensors, and the scanners based on them, can be used in the imaging of shiny and mirror-like surfaces, transparent materials, and multi-layered structures in various metrology and inspection applications.
In the late 2000s, researchers at Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT) invented a new optical method to image 3D microtopography of surfaces at sub-micron resolution. This method, called line confocal imaging (LCI), is based on capturing a continuous line of light reflections in visible spectrum from more than 2,000 lateral surface points simultaneously.
