Radiation scattered from a V-shaped groove in the resonance domain was measured and compared to predictions from a rigorous theory. The calculated scattering accurately predicted the number of peaks and general shape of the observed scattering. Small variations in groove shape were found to alter peak heights noticeably and peak positions slightly. Finite beam size caused unavoidable discrepancies between calculated and measured scattering.
