Abstract

Speckle patterns in the light field scattered from the rough surface of a cylindrical object are experimentally studied. The light speckles are elongated in the direction normal to the cylinder axis. A theoretical model explains the main features of the scattered light field. The dimensions of light speckles depend on both the surface roughness and the surface curvature.
