    To establish of standard technique of nanolength measurement in a two-dimensional plane, a new (AFM) system has been designed. In this system, measurement uncertainty is dominantly affected by the Abbe error of the XYZ scanning stage. No linear stage is perfectly straight; in other words, every...

    We propose an approach to constructing a new type of design, a sliced space-filling design, intended for computer experiments with qualitative and quantitative factors. The approach starts with constructing a Latin hypercube design based on a special orthogonal array for the quantitative factors...
