Paper Abstract

This paper presents a general method for measuring the frequency response of a surface profiling instrument. One important consequence of this work is the discussion of the importance of the modification of surface spatial frequencies by the measuring instrument. The method uses a step height sample to characterize the impulse instrument, and power spectrum response. Experimental measurements are shown for a variety of focusing objectives. The results show that the half power bandwidth provides a good characterization of the high spatial frequency limit of a surface profiler.
