Abstract

Experimental results on the angular distribution of the light scattered by a one-dimensional gold-coated randomly rough surface in a conical configuration are presented. Several polarizations are considered for the incident and the detected intensities. The surface profile of the sample constitutes a good approximation to a Gaussian random process with a Gaussian correlation function. Effects related to the phenomenon of enhanced backscattering are observed.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Schematic diagram of the scattering geometry. A one-dimensional surface is illuminated by an electromagnetic wave with wave vector ki. The projection of ki on the plane xz makes an angle θ0 with the z axis, and the incident wave vector makes an angle φ with its projection on the plane xz. The scattering wave vector ks is defined in a similar fashion, and the angle θS is measured from the yz plane. The sign convention is such that all three angles are negative in the figure. The inset shows the two unit vectors, π̂ and σ(x00302), that define the polarization with respect to the plane defined by ki and the y axis.
