Abstract

Using a recently discovered short-coupling-range phenomenon, we have completed a computer code that is able to compute rigorously the speckle pattern diffracted by a random rough surface with an arbitrary number of asperities, illuminated by a laser beam. This computer code is used to determine the condition under which the mean intensity at infinity of the speckle pattern can be precisely obtained.
