Paper Abstract

The treatment of first- and second order intensity statistics of light scattered from surfaces not giving rise to fully developed speckles will be presented. Analytical expressions will be given for speckle size, first-order intensity moments and intensity variance within the framework of using the Huygens-Fresnel integral with the complete optical system included by the complex valued system ray ABCD-matrix. Various surface models will be presented, all being based on a Gaussian height distribution with various lateral length scale(s). For the sake of simplicity, only rotationally symmetric optical systems will be treated and no depolarization effects during scattering will be included.
