Paper Abstract

The radius of curvature, slope error, surface roughness and associated height distribution and power spectral density of uncoated commercial float glass samples have been measured in our Canadian Light Source Optical Metrology Facility, using our Micromap-570 surface profiler and long trace profilometer. The statistical differences in these parameters have been investigated between the tin and air sides of float glass. The effect of soaking the float glass in sulfuric acid to try to dissolve the tin contamination has also been investigated, and untreated and post-treatment surface roughness measurements compared. We report the results of our studies on these float glass samples.
