Surface Topography

In surface topography measurements we aim to measure the peaks and troughs of local deviations of a surface of a sample. The resulting measurements of the surface will have a  substantially affect on the properties of the  component or material. Despite the microstructural nature of these surface irregularities, the influence they have may be observed when evaluating using a Huvitz HDS 5800 microscope. Surface topography characterisation is important in many fields, such as failure analysis, production control, material development.
