Research and development innovations are critical to tackle global challenges such as neutral carbon dioxide economy, higher energy efficiency, high bandwidth communication, and pandemic fighting. New materials research quickly evolves in a wide range of fields, from geology to opto-electronic, requiring dedicated and high-performance characterization tools.

This webinar provides a comprehensive explanation of roughness considerations, including such key concepts as waviness, roughness and spatial filtering. You will learn how to properly set up measurements and subsequent post-processing analyses to comply with ISO standards for mean roughness. Both profile and areal based measurements are described, with emphasis on their differences. Practical examples based on 3D optical profiler and roughness standards are also covered.

Who should attend:

  • Materials scientists
  • Bio-mechanical researchers
  • Geology & nuclear waste researchers
  • Materials development researchers & engineers
  • Waveguide optical developers
