You can use the focus knob on a microscope to measure the
depth with a few microns accuracy. Use as high a magnification
as you can for smaller errors.

It's nice to calibrate the focus know with an object of know height.

With channels this wide and with a low aspect ration you should
be able to focus on the channel bottoms.

Two issues here: (1) how do you accurately control the etch depth of 500 um ? (2) How do you precisely measure the depth of 500 um range? Your suggestions are highly appreciated.
