Paper Abstract

Recently a modification of the Kirchhoff approximation was presented to permit the calculation of the multiple scattered light in rough surfaces with infinite slopes. Here we present a brief description of the method and examples of the scattering of light from rough surfaces with rectangular grooves. The examples presented here show how the scattering pattern changes from a periodic surface to a random surface. The randomness is added to the groove width, separation and depth separately to investigate the effect of each of these parameters on the scattering.
