Bruker announced today that Alcon Corporation has selected the
Bruker ContourGT-X8 Optical Surface Profiler to provide non-destructive,
non-contact reference metrology for critical dimensioning and 3D
characterization of Alcon's current and next-generation intra-ocular lenses
Alcon is the global leader in eye care, offering the widest spectrum of eye
care products across surgical, pharmaceutical and vision care.
The Bruker ContourGT®-X8 Optical Surface Profiler.
"The ContourGT-X8 is Bruker's flagship optical profiler, offering the most
advanced capabilities in enhanced metrology hardware and parallel processing
Vision64 software," said Robert M. Loiterman, Vice President and General
Manager of Bruker's Stylus and Optical Metrology Business in Tucson,
"We are confident that the many innovative enhancements on the ContourGT 3D
microscope platform, such as the increased brightness dual HB-LED light source,
lower noise-floor and industry leading 64-bit Vision64 software with parallel

About the ContourGT Family
Introduced in 2010, the ContourGT family of 3D microscopes features
Bruker-patented, high-brightness dual-LED illumination that, when combined with
the family's superior vertical resolution, greatly improves sensitivity and
stability and enables precision non-contact 3D surface metrology in difficult
applications and environments that are challenging for other systems. The
ContourGT family also features the new Bruker-developed and patent-pending
Vision64 operating and analysis software that includes parallel processing for
enhanced throughput, optional AcuityXR capabilities for beyond
optical-diffraction-limit profiling and the industry's most intuitive, modular
user interface that provides user-level-customization capabilities for a wide
range of surface profiling metrology applications. For more information, or to
