Newport Corp. has launched its newly-enhanced systems test & metrology lab located at the company's global headquarters for R&D, in California, U.S.A. The lab is dedicated to measuring the performance of Newport's motion control products.

The lab's enhancements include environmental controls assuring stability of environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, acoustics and vibration, as well as investment in new and advanced test equipment technology including a Zygo interferometer. The facility was constructed to meet the requirements of cleanroom operations needed for metrology of nanometer-class precision measurements.

Additionally, a procedure, based on recognized national and international standards, was developed to facilitate consistency in tests and the analysis of test data. A program was also implemented to ensure that the lab's equipment is calibrated to national standards on a regular basis.
