Paper Abstract

The effects of coatings on the optical scatter and related surface microroughness of coated surfaces are examined. Experimental results indicate that coated surfaces, in some cases, are smoother than the bare substrate. A model for smoothing process is presented. The role of deposition mechanism and substrate morphology are discussed.
