Abstract

Numerical calculations of mean scattered intensities by simulation of one-dimensional perfectly conductive random rough surfaces are presented. Results relative to backscattering enhancement and more accurate criteria for the validity of the Kirchhoff approximation are obtained. This method can also be used for assessing perturbative theories and for further experiments.
