Vertical topography range

10 nm* to 10 µm (0.39* to 394 microinches (µin))

*: RMS noise floor is 1 nm, meaning that 10 nm is the minimum step height with reasonable accuracy

Surface roughness range

10 nm to 4 µm (0.39 to 157 microinches (µin))

Conversions

1 µm = 39.37 microinch µin

1 nm = 0.03937 µin

1 µin = 1 millionth of an inch
