Optical Measurement of Surface Topography Summary


Optical Measurement of Surface Topography by Richard Leach

The measurement and characterisation of surface topography is crucial to modern manufacturing industry. The control of areal surface structure allows a manufacturer to radically alter the functionality of a part. Examples include structuring to effect fluidics, optics, tribology, aerodynamics and biology. To control such manu facturing methods requires measurement strategies. There is now a large range of new optical techniques on the market, or being developed in academia, that can measure areal surface topography. Each method has its strong points and limitations. The book starts with introductory chapters on optical instruments, their common language, generic features and limitations, and their calibration. Each type of modern optical instrument is described (in a common format) by an expert in the field. The book is intended for both industrial and academic scientists and engineers, and will be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

Optical Measurement of Surface Topography Reviews


From the reviews:

"This book shows how optical microscopy can be used in the characterization and metrology of various surfaces. ... Several important methods are presented in a clear and simple way ... . The case studies scattered throughout the text greatly improve the readability and contribute to the practical emphasis of this book. ... the index is comprehensive. I recommend this book to anyone trying to find the most appropriate method for surface topography measurement, as well as researchers who are new to using microscopy for measurements." (Dejan Pantelic, Optics & Photonics News, December, 2011)
