Paper Abstract

It has been incorrectly argued that the surfaces of a plane parallel transmissive optical element do not contribute equally to the total far-field scatter from the element even though the micro-roughness characteristics of the two surfaces are the same. Three seemingly logical arguments that predict very different results are presented. The correct one predicts that the two surfaces contribute equally to the total scatter.
