Rapid Method Using Deep Learning with Multi-focus Microphotographs to Measure Submicrometric Structures and Its Evaluation

2021 Journal of Laser Micro/Nanoengineering  
Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) systems are commonly used for measuring the dimensions of laser-processed objects. Nevertheless, both methods require some time for preprocessing and measurement, thereby entailing high costs. We propose a simple, fast, and inexpensive method for measuring submicrometric structures using deep learning with multi-focus microphotographs taken using an optical microscope. The average errors in depth and height for a
