Abstract

We develop a coherent-scattering model for the reflection of light from a monolayer of large particles and low surface coverage. The model takes into account multiple scattering between particles of the monolayer and with the substrate, and it can be used around the critical angle in an internal reflection configuration. We compare the results of the model with our own reflectivity data taken with latex particles adsorbed on a glass–water interface and with a simpler effective-medium model.
