Surface topography has a profound influence on the function of a surface. In industrial practice, geometric product specification is an important issue. The measurement and characterization of the geometric features of machined parts is important when trying to determine the functional properties of surfaces, and also in the control of process parameters during manufacturing. However, there are many other areas of science, engineering and even the arts where surface topography is critical to function.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an international forum for the dissemination of scientific information on surface metrology—submission from all fields involving the measurement and characterization of surface topography, including archaeology, art conservation, anthropology, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, civil engineering, food science, forensics, geodetics, geology, material science, mechanical engineering, manufacturing, metrology, nanotechnology, tribology, and others. The Special Issue covers the modelling, design, and characterization of surfaces and the relationship between surface properties and their applications. This Special Issue accepts high-quality articles containing original research results and review papers regarding metrology, development, and application of the science and technology of measurement, instrumentation and characterisation.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
