A panel discussion on interface roughness was held at the Fall 1992 Materials Research Society meeting. We present a summary of the results presented by the invited speakers on the application and interpretation of X-ray reflectivity, atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), photoluminescence and transmission electron microscopy. A transcript of the moderated discussion is provided in the final section.
