Microscope

Features

These are the features we're looking for:

  • 500x magnification
  • 2 MP to 8 MP camera
  • Objective table to move the chip slowly (i.e. not by hand, too much shaking and imprecision)

Feature we DON'T NEED:

  • [Confocal microscope] (it seems, because we'll abrase/grind away the upper layers anyway and the bottom layers are opaque anyway too)

Leads

  • Friend of Phil will lend a microscope with camera
    • not perfect but should enable us to do the first etching/abrasive steps
  • Ebay? No perfect match yet.
