Paper Abstract

This paper presents the surface roughness characteristics obtained from three different instruments: a mechanical stylus profilometer, a split-beam detection optical profilometer, and an interference microscope. Experimental data for both molded and coated plastic reflector surfaces using different measuring techniques are reviewed and the deficiencies in relating the various methods are clearly illustrated.
