Title: Structured, textured or engineered surfaces
Published: January 01, 1999
Abstract: Fine scale periodic structures offer designers additional freedom to create novel functions or combinations of functions. This emerging field of structured surfaces is poorly defined. This paper attempts to define structured surfaces, and then to provide examples of such surfaces for a variety of applications. Manufacturing and metrology are also discussed.
