TUCSON, Ariz. -- March 5, 2013

Bruker today announced the launch of the new, scalable ContourGT-K  3D optical
microscope for value-oriented, uncompromised bench-top metrology.
Incorporating many of the advanced features of Bruker’s flagship optical
metrology products, the ContourGT-K delivers unsurpassed Z-axis resolution
across all fields of view and superior 2D/3D imaging capability for
non-contact profile, roughness and thickness measurements on a wide range of
surfaces. The system’s gage-capable, streamlined design includes integrated
air isolation for robust vibration tolerance in even challenging production
environments. The new ContourGT-K also incorporates the latest version Bruker
Vision64™ software and the most extensive library of pre-programmed filters
and analyses for easy access to advanced measurements for LED, solar cell,
thick films, semiconductor, ophthalmic, medical device, MEMS and tribology

“Bruker has drawn on three decades of optical measurement experience and
innovation to deliver a true metrology system at price points previously only
attainable with traditional confocal imaging systems,” said Rob Loiterman,
Executive Vice President and General Manager of Bruker’s Stylus and Optical
Metrology Business. “With ContourGT-K, researchers and engineers no longer
have to choose between great images and quantifiable metrology.”

“Cost-optimized for high speed, accuracy, and ease of use, the ContourGT-K
delivers the precision required for demanding metrology over a very broad
range of surfaces,” added Kent Heath, Senior Director of Bruker’s Stylus and
Optical Metrology Business. “It features an extensive array of factory and
field upgradeable add-ons, such as application-specific productivity software,
automated turret, stages and tilt functions, color and high-resolution camera
options, and our unique NanoLens™ AFM module, which together make the
ContourGT-K highly scalable to meet evolving customer needs.”
