Confocal microscopy is used for high precision texture analysis. The Sensofar Plu Neox laser scanning confocal microscope is provided with a 20X (0.45 NA) objective, with a spatial sampling of 0.83 mm, an optical resolution of 0.31 mm, a vertical resolution of 20 nm and a z-step interval of 1 mm. We currently use this optical equipment to quantify any type of textures, mainly icrotextures of human and animal teeth as well as use-wear analysis of lithic and bone instruments, though it can be utilized for measuring wear on any kind of object.
