How about *rugulose*?

The more *rugulose* an etched foil anode, the greater the capacitance .... or should that be ‘the more *rugose*, yet another one starting with rug-

These two are just distinguished apart by relative fine-ness or coarseness of wrinkle and don’t express things mathematically. Only rugosity has that capability.
Let’s give a big hand to the nuances of Latinate words !
