Abstract
The process to convert raw profilometer data describing surface roughness into PSD and BSDF is discussed, but not well-documented in the open optical engineering literature, and is therefore prone to procedural mistakes. This paper describes the step-by-step numerical process as well as the three "check points" that insure that errors have not been introduced into the calculation. A numerical example is discussed.
