Paper Abstract

This article describes surface roughness and waviness measurements for optical parts. The basic description of roughness is reviewed for a digital surface profiler and comparisons made for the lower spectrum description of surface topography. The power spectrum analysis is also reviewed with a special emphasis on a low variance algorithm. Applications for the optics industry for both flat and curved parts are presented.
