Paper Abstract

An optical roughness measuring instrument has been developed for applications in the field of mechanical engineering. It is based upon the angular-speckle-correlation (ASC) method. Two-dimensional processing of the digitized speckle patterns is performed by means of a fast correlation algorithm. Alignment errors, which inevitably occur in practice and may impair the measurement, can be compensated by evaluating the position of the maximum value of the 2D-cross-correlation function of the speckle patterns. Experiments have been carried out using differently machined rough surface samples.
