The Leica Stereo Explorer automatically creates 3D data records from two 2D stereo microscope images on your monitor.
From this data, you can extract profiles. Roughness or undulation can be determined with high precision.
In addition, actual to projected area ratios (fractal dimension) and volumetric calculations of depressions and elevations can be made.
You can calculate any user selectable area and the volume of dents and peaks in your sample.
