Motorized Focus Unit Available for Quick Z-axis Measurement
The STM6 has adopted a motorized focus unit that significantly improves operability when focusing and measuring a height or depth. 5 step control over the speed of the vertical Z motor, greatly reduces fatigue during operation.

UIS2 Optical System and LED Illumination Enhances Edge Detection
The STM6 employs Olympus' UIS2 optical system that achieves superior resolution and contrast, and LED illumination that delivers faithful color reproduction independent of changes in brightness. This greatly improves the detection of edges, thus resulting in dramatic improvement in measurement repeatability. The LED illumination is also free from flickering and brightness fluctuation, reducing eye fatigue even over extended periods of operation.
Reticles are Used for Easy Positioning
High-accuracy Auto Focus System (available as an option)
This laser-based focus system provides two modes of functions: one-shot and trace. Visual measurement of a height or a depth, which requires subtle operations, can be automated by selecting either mode. This significantly improves the efficiency and reproducibility of Z-axis measurements while allowing continued observation while using both hands on the stage control knobs.
This mode provides instant focusing in the center of the field of view through the execution of the auto focus.
This mode always maintains the state in focus while moving the stage across a sample. This greatly improves the operating time.

Focus Navigator Achieves High-accuracy Height Measurement and Increased Reproducibility
Olympus Focus Navigator system improves reproducibility during focusing by aligning the vertical displacement of the index pattern projected on the specimen. The focus navigator improves the repeatability in height measurement and reduces measurement variations due to personal difference, compared with visual focusing. The index pattern is compatible with various specimens simplifying focusing to contribute a dramatic reduction in measurement time. The Focus Navigator unit is compatible with reflected brightfield and reflected darkfield observations with objective lenses of 10x through 50x.
