Paper Abstract

The evaluation of state of surface roughness is indispensable in many technological processes. It is important as far as fabrication of high quality optical and mechanical surfaces is concerned. Many parameters have been introduced which are connected with characteristics of microgeometry of surfaces, however, there is no direct method of their measurement. On the other hand, there exist well known standarised characteristic values of roughness but most of the methods of their measurements have disadventages such as restrictions on their applications, exertion of pressure on surface, inspection of the area instead of a line and excessive consumption of time. Optical methods do not have all of these disadventages as they are nondestructive, they allow for quick and repetitive measurements of characteristics of two dimensional surfaces in a wide range of roughness. The main aim of the paper is to introduce a design of optoelectronic sensor for surface roughness of size larger than the wavelength of light used for measurements.
