QUESTION:

For benchtop microscopes, what types of contamination are they best suited to identify?

 

 

ANSWER:

Cleanliness can describe both permanent defects (example: cracks) and loose contamination defects (example: dirt, dust, cleaning solvent residues).

Inspection is critical for telecom and datacom applications and some would argue that the most critical place is at the production facility.  Industry standards for end-face cleanliness (for example IEC-61300-3-35) have led many manufacturers to prove their compliance with certification records.
