Paper Abstract

In this paper homogeneous model for surface roughness in identical layer system has been presented. It has been shown that reflectance change in non-absorbing layer is directly proportional to the square of total thickness of the layers. The reflectance in the visible range of the wavelength changes (decreases) substantially when the roughness factor or the number of layers are increases. In the present model the reflectance of the double layer system can be explained with the help of only one parameter that is roughness factor σ.
