A profilometer is used to measure surface profiles to determine the roughness of surfaces. The Dektak 150 is a contact stylus profilometer. The diamond tip stylus is run over a sample surface and records height differences which is sent to a computer.
Materials allowed: everything which is not considered as contaminating within NanoLab rules, sample size can’t exceed 150 mm in diameter and 90 mm in height.
