Abstract

This project evaluates the use of Surface Metrology—the study of surface texture—in research publications funded by the National Science Foundation. It involves a critique on these research publications based on how they characterize surfaces towards fulfilling their research objectives. By conducting a comparative analysis of various measurement instruments and parameters, this project seeks to improve the use of Surface Metrology in research and industry.
