Paper Abstract

The results of experiments designed to study the relationship between the visible scatter from mirrors and their particulate contamination are described. Data for both "clean" and deliberately contaminated samples is presented. The results reveal some of the features of surface contaminant scatter and indicate that this scattering mechanism could account for the discrepancies that have been observed between measured scattered light profiles and profiles predicted by theories based on random surface microstructure.
