Calculations are performed to relate the stylus profile of a one-dimensionally rough surface to the angular distribution of the light scattered by such a surface. In the direct problem, the angular distribution of the scattered light calculated from the profile is shown to agree with the measured one. In the inverse problem, the rms roughness and the autocorrelation function are found by a least-squares fit to the measured angular distribution. For the smoother surfaces, the rms roughness is… Expand
