NIST Finds Rough Spot in Surface Measurement

Abstract:
For makers of computers, disk drives and other sophisticated technologies, a guiding principle is the smoother the surfaces of chips and other components, the better these devices and the products, themselves, will function. So, some manufacturers might be surprised to learn that a fast and increasingly popular method for measuring surface texture can yield misleading results.
