Abstract

See full text

Apparatus for determining the effective surface roughness of polished optical samples, by measuring the total integrated scattering, only operates for non-light-transmissive samples. For a transmissive sample, the invention adds a light trap behind the sample for transmitted light, and a diaphragm in front of the sample. The rear surface of the diaphragm is provided with a non-reflective wafing which traps secondary light reflected or scattered by the inside rear surface of the sample.
