Paper Abstract

We outline the results of surface profile measurements which suggest that many solid surfaces might realistically be modelled as multi-scale or fractal in nature. Experimental results of scattering radiation from such a well characterised fractal surface are presented and show a strikingly different behaviour to that expected from smoothly varying single-scale surfaces.
