Summary Two curved surfaces of molecularly smooth mica are brought into contact under a controlled load, and their deformed shape is measured using optical interference fringes of equal chromatic order. This technique allows exceptionally accurate measurements of surface profiles at separations down to a molecular scale. Contact between the surfaces can be made either adhesive or nonadhesive by suitable choice of the medium between them. Results have been obtained in both cases and compared with the theories of Hertz (nonadhesive contact) and Johnson, Kendall, and Roberts (adhesive contact).
