Light Scattering from Photofabricated Surfaces with non-Gaussian Statistical Properties

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The scattering of light from randomly rough surfaces has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years. Despite all this work, several aspects of the problem remain poorly understood. More specifically, analytical progress is difficult in situations when multiple scattering effects are important, when the statistics of the surface are non-Gaussian, and when the surface profile is multiscale (fractal-like). For a number of years, it has been clear that more systematic studies of the problem are required. In particular, for experimental work, it is important to be able to fabricate surfaces with known statistical properties in a more or less controlled way.
