Paper Abstract

Different possible interferometers for surface roughness measurements are described. Advantages and disadvantages of optical techniques compared to stylus instruments are discussed. Important features of phase-shifting techniques for surface roughness measurements are given. The WYKO NCP-1000M optical profiler is described along with techniques for measuring surfaces having an rms roughness on the order of 0.1 nm.
