The reflection studies of steel samples subjected to etching and oxidation processes have been performed with an integrating sphere. Such measurements have allowed one to separate the specular- and diffuse component intensities of light reflected from the surfaces studied in order to determine the surface quality which changes substantially after mechanical- (polishing) and chemical treatments (etching, corrosion). The performed atomic force microscopy (AFM) investigation supports applicability of the integrating sphere for determination of steel surface roughness.
