Total integrated scatter from surfaces with arbitrary roughness, correlation widths, and incident angles
Surface scatter effects from residual optical fabrication errors can severely degrade optical performance. The total integrated scatter (TIS) from a given mirror surface is determined by the ratio ofExpand
Modified Beckmann-Kirchoff scattering theory for nonparaxial angles
The Beckmann-Kirchoff (B-K) classical scalar diffraction theory is commonly used in the scatter community to model and predict scattering behavior when surfaces are 'rough.' However, although the B-KExpand
Linear systems formulation of scattering theory for rough surfaces with arbitrary incident and scattering angles.
Scattering effects from microtopographic surface roughness are merely nonparaxial diffraction phenomena resulting from random phase variations in the reflected or transmitted wavefront.Expand
Diffracted radiance: a fundamental quantity in nonparaxial scalar diffraction theory.
Most authors include a paraxial (small-angle) limitation in their discussion of diffracted wave fields. This paraxial limitation severely limits the conditions under which diffraction behavior isExpand
Unified scatter model for rough surfaces at large incident and scatter angles
A new unified surface scatter model has been developed that produces accurate results for rougher surfaces than the classical Rayleigh-Rice vector perturbation theory and for larger incident andExpand

A scalar theory of surface scattering phenomena has been formulated by utilizing the same Fourier techniques that have proven so successful in the area of image formation. An analytical expressionExpand
Fourier treatment of near‐field scalar diffraction theory
A general treatment of scaler diffraction theory is presented and some interesting concepts are discussed which yield new insight into the phenomena of diffraction throughout the whole space in whichExpand
Modeling physical optics phenomena by complex ray tracing
Abstract. Physical optics modeling requires propagating optical wave fields from a specific radiometric source through complex systems of apertures and reflective or refractive optical components, orExpand
Modeling of light scattering in different regimes of surface roughness.
The light scattering of rough metallic surfaces with roughness levels ranging from a few to several hundred nanometers is modeled and compared to experimental data. Different modeling approaches suchExpand
Modified Beckmann-Kirchhoff scattering model for rough surfaces with large incident and scattering angles
Surface scattering effects are merely diffraction phenomena resulting from random phase variations induced on the reflected wave- front by microtopographic surface features. The Rayleigh-Rice andExpand
