Market Definition 

Optical measurement is collection of measurement using the optical sensors. Non-invasiveness is the main advantage of optical measurement. Optical sensors used in optical measurement are quite sensitive because of that ultra-fine movement of the particle is also observed because of that. The main disadvantage of the optical measurement id that the optical measurement cannot address the errors which humans would be able to address. LED industry based on the optical measurement. Standard integrating sphere calibration procedures accurately measure the optical properties of LEDs. GapGun device manufactured by Third Dimension used in the optical measurement that uses the laser triangulation technology. In March 2018, Zygo launched the next-generation 3D optical profilers with advances in data acquisition, speed, sensitivity and intelligent operation. By launch of this product the company had had expanded its product portfolio in the optical measurement market.  In February 2018, Nikon enters into business transfer agreement to coordinate measuring machine business. Through this agreement Nikon decided to focus optical 3D Metrology and X-ray/CT inspection systems solutions. In January 2018, Nikon entered into business agreement with advanced cell technology. In this agreement Nikon will use its optical and image analysis technology.
