1.1   Introduction

Surface roughness is becoming increasingly important as optical instruments have much higher performance specifications, microelectronic circuits become more compressed with more information packed into a smaller area, and optical and magnetic disks have increased information storage density. Surface characterization techniques have now advanced to sophisticated levels to meet these needs.

Surface characterization is too large a subject to be ...
