AFM in surface finishing. Part II. Surface roughness
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
This practical topics paper, the second in a short series concerning the use of atomic force microscopy (AFM) in surface finishing, focuses on various types of surface roughness measurement that can be obtained from AFM data. Surface roughness can greatly affect optical, tribological and catalytic properties of surfaces. Roughened surfaces also have implications in biofouling due to the increased number of contact points for bacterial attachment as well as protection of these cells from shear forces.
