Abstract

A new method is presented which allows the quantification of the orientation and the roughness of surfaces in three dimensions without restrictive assumptions. It is based on the measurement of x-y-z coordinates from stereopair SEM photographs and the determination of intersections between the three-dimensional surface and lines in 13 directions represented by the unit vectors of structuring cubes.
