Calibration and Measurement Software

Advanced Surface Microscopy, Inc. has developed a number of software packages to enhance the use of the AFM.  Developed first for our own use, we have made them available for sale to customers worldwide.

  • DiscTrack Plus
    Our flagship product.  DiscTrack Plus automates and calibrates the measurement of large numbers of features in AFM images.  Developed first for the Optical Disc Industry (CD, DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, and more) and later adopted for the magnetic disk industry, DiscTrack Plus is a powerful tool whenever you wish to measure arrays of large numbers of features
    • DiscTrack Plus now measures Edge Roughness of continuous ridge/groove media and other regular structures.
  • DTP Advanced Image Processor
    A utility/preprocessor program  for AFM and other instrument users.  Provides file format conversion and filters to correct several common image artifacts.
  • SPIP
    We are a distributor of SPI, Scanning Probe Image Processor.  Correct image artifacts and measure images with tools that go far beyond those provided by most AFM software.
