Paper Abstract

The intensity correlation function of' the light scattered by the diffuse object under fully developed speckle pattern illumination has been theoretically and experimentally investigated. The scattered light is called a doubly scattered light. When the patially coherent light illuminates the diffuse object over enough wider region than the coherence area, the doubly scattered light obeys Gaussian statistics. Then the surface roughness o the diffuse object does not depend on the speckle contrast of the doubly scattered light, but depends on the speckle size (decay rate of the intensity correlation function). From these properties, two roughness parameters of the object have been determined.
