Paper Abstract

This article describes an instrument capable of making precision smoothness measurements on optical surfaces. The feasibility of extending the use of this new measurement technique and instrument into the domain of high precision machined parts and surfaces will be discussed. Such techniques and instruments will provide moderate cost tools for use in evaluating surfaces where defects can cause friction and/or stress failure. Particular applications in machined part and automotive industries are anticipated.
