Part of the Microtechnology and MEMS book series (MEMS)


This chapter reviews topography measurement techniques that allow performing the in situ quantification of roughness and the analysis of the surface morphology during sliding experiments. The method of digital holographic microscopy is then introduced in detail and examples of topography evolution are presented.
