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
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
Image degradation due to surface scatter in the presence of aberrations.
Image analysis in the presence of surface scatter due to residual optical fabrication errors is often perceived to be complicated, nonintuitive, and achieved only by computationally intensiveExpand
Optical Design for the Optimum Solid Immersion Lens with High Numerical Aperture and Large Tolerance
Super hemispherical solid immersion lens system becomes a matter of interest due to its high numerical aperture (NA) gain. However, because of the instability of the aplanatic condition, even smallExpand
Linear systems formulation of image analysis in the presence of both aberrations and surface scatter
Image analysis in the presence of surface scatter due to residual optical fabrication errors is often perceived to be complicated, non-intuitive and computationally intensive. The linear systemsExpand
Calculating BRDFs from surface PSDs for moderately rough optical surfaces
Image degradation due to scattered radiation is a serious problem in many short wavelength (X-ray/EUV) imaging systems. Most currently-available image analysis codes require the scatter behaviorExpand
Scattering from moderately rough interfaces between two arbitrary media
The generalized Harvey-Shack (GHS) surface scatter theory has been shown to accurately predict the BRDF produced by moderately rough mirror surfaces from surface metrology data. The predicted BRDFExpand
Numerical validation of the generalized Harvey–Shack surface scatter theory
Abstract. The generalized Harvey–Shack (GHS) surface scatter theory is numerically compared to the classical small perturbation method, the Kirchhoff approximation method, and the rigorous method ofExpand
Image degradation due to scattering effects in two-mirror telescopes
Image degradation due to scattered radiation is a serious problem in many short-wavelength (x-ray and EUV) imaging systems. Most currently available image analysis codes require the scatteringExpand
Approach to investigating the spherical aberration variation with the object position in an aplanatic system.
In a general optical system, spherical aberration will arise when the on-axis position of an object is changed from its optimum position to another point. Induced spherical aberration can be used toExpand
