Abstract : The angular spectrum of plane waves approach to scalar diffraction theory has been extended to include scattering. An instrument was designed and constructed to measure scattered light distributions from aluminized glass surfaces. Diffuse reflectance measurements were made on samples having varying degrees of surface finish. Results of these measurements as a function of angle of incidence and wavelength are reported.
