Methods of characterizing t roughness of and scattering from plane single-point diamond-turned surfaces include Nomarski mlcroscopy, microscopic double-beam and multiple-beam interferometry, mechanical profilometry, normalized scatter, and BRDF measurements. Size and curvature parameters limit the usefulness of some of these techniques in the study of nonflat, real-life hardware. A nartial solution to the problems of characterizing curved surfaces is t use replication methods. Polishing reduces the surface roughness and scattering from nonflat single-point diamond-turned surfaces.
