Abstract

A new technique for the measurement of surface roughness based on the intensity fluctuations of laser light backscattered from a moving surface has been introduced. Using a statistical model describing surface macroroughness, the possibility of inversion of optically measured data to geometrical surface profile parameters is investigated.
