Paper Abstract

In this work we present experimental and theoretical studies of the scattering of light propagating along a waveguide, a finite part of whose surface is randomly rough. We study the angular distribution of the intensity of the scattered light emerging from different parts of the rough surface. The angular distributions show a strong dependence on the distance of the radiating section from the front edge of the rough part of the waveguide. The experimental results are supported by theoretical studies of the problem. The angular distribution of the intensity of the light scattered into vacuum were calculated by means of a solution of the corresponding reduced Rayleigh equations.
