Paper Abstract

The development of a formal standard test method for the surface microroughness characterization of optical components is outlined. The results of an interlaboratory comparison of the test method are presented to illustrate the advantages and limitations of this approach to measure effective rms surface roughness. The lab-to-lab variations in measured total integrated scatter (TIS), effective roughness, were found to be about +15%. The within-lab variations were about ±5%.
