Abstract

The different steps leading to the determination of a surface profile deduced from microdensitometer analysis of electron micrographs of shadowed surface replicas are reviewed. It is shown that monodimensional median filtering is sometimes inadequate to remove the low-frequency noise generated by the Levy–Wiener process. A new treatment is proposed that corrects this disadvantage.
