Paper Abstract

Light scattering can critically affect the performance of high-end optical systems. For instance, unavoidable but small residual imperfections of optical components such as surface or coating roughness, bulk inhomogeneities, and defects as well as the interaction of light with apertures and baffles give rise to light scattering propagating through the optical system which degrades the imaging quality and leads to a loss of the optical throughput.
