Paper Abstract

A window function is used to represent the variation in the intensity of the radiation in a light beam. Windowing effects are factored into computations of the angular distribution of light scattered by a sinusoidal surface. These effects, as well as those of harmonics and noise, are shown for the angular distributions computed from simulated profiles. The integrated power in each diffraction peak computed for perfect sinusoids, measured profiles, and simulated profiles with different window functions is compared to that of a measured angular distribution.
