Paper Abstract

The vector and scalar theories of scattering as applied to X-ray scattering from mirror surfaces are reviewed. The results of both in the smooth surface limit are shown to be identical. In the smooth surface limit, the scalar theory has been extended to include the effects of finite surface conductivity leading to a quantitative description of the reduced specular reflection coefficient. Away from the smooth surface limit the scalar theory result has been calculated for a random roughness description of the scattering surface. Using this approach the intensity distribution has been evaluated independently of the statistics used to describe the distribution of surface heights.
