Paper Abstract

The degree of linear polarization of the thermal radiation depends on the surface roughness. A simple facet-surface model is used to describe the rough surface and to evaluate the far-field Stokes parameters are evaluated. The dependence of the polarized emission on the roughness parameter, fractal dimension, and material type is investigated.
