I need a simple mental physical picture of interface roughness. If the auto-correlation function of surface roughness is Gaussian, does a long correlation length connote a smooth surface or not? I do not seem to be able to find a simple picture that would appeal to me physically. Thanks all for helping.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
