Digital Surf has been developing surface imaging & metrology software for profilers and microscopes since 1989.
Digital Surf's main focus is on working as a partner and co-developer with surface imaging & metrology instrument manufacturers worldwide. Mountains® 7 software technology is now offered by the majority of profiler and microscope manufacturers and is embedded in their equipment or available as an option.
Digital Surf also provides software packages to instrument users under the trademark MountainsMap® when required.
Mountains® has an installed base of 10,000+ licenses worldwide, works in over 10 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards, and is supplied by 40+ instrument manufacturers wordwide 


Since 1994 NanoFocus AG develops, produces and distributes optical 3D measurement technology for use in industry and laboratories. In 1998 the company introduced the first generation of µsurf-systems to the market - the first industrially applicable confocal microscope for the analysis of technical surfaces. These and other NanoFocus technologies, continously further developed, are today state-of-the-art in industrial surface measurement technology and have become indispensable in many industrial sectors. The software platform comprises intuitive measuring and control software, comprehensive analysis and evaluation tools, application-specific software packages as well as databank-based automation Software that meets industrial standards.

QSO Interferometer Systems AB - is a spin-off company from Halmstad University, Sweden
QSO is short for Quasi-Stellar-Object and shows the pedigree of the company from interferometer imaging of active galactic nuclei in radio astronomy. The technology is an example of cross-science from extreme high-resolution imaging of quasars to the nanometric structure of machined surfaces. The QISAB CWS coherent laser scattering instrument is developed within the EU project poliMATIC with the Fraunhofer Institute of Aachen, Germany.
