Autocorrelation functions for rough (random, quasiperiodical and deterministic-periodical) surfaces are deduced from the surface profiles determined by using the line-by-line analysis of atomic force microscopy images. It is shown that the initial parts of autocorrelation functions have a Gaussian form. An attempt to use the concept of fractal as a bridge between deterministic periodic and random (spontaneous) surfaces including quasiperiodic ones have been made.
