Abstract
Quasi-calibrated, easy-to-use visual methods for assessing the roughness (or smoothness) of optical surfaces and thin film coatings in the optical shop are investigated as to their correlation with instrumental surface roughness measurement methods. An intriguing relation between visual relative ranking of optical surfaces with the aid of a Nomarski microscope and the fractal dimension of their scattered light field is described in some detail.
