Beam Wander Display and Statistics
Measurement Accuracy (not limited to pixel size)0.1 µm processing resolution for interpolated diameters.
Absolute accuracy is beam profile dependent - ~1 µm accuracy is frequently achievable.
Centroid accuracy is also beam dependent (as good as ±1 µ since it is arithmetically determined from all pixels above the centroid clip level).
