Abstract

We propose a method of designing two-dimensional random surfaces that scatter light uniformly within a specified range of angles and produce no scattering outside that range. The method is first tested by means of computer simulations. Then a procedure for fabricating such structures on photoresist is described, and light-scattering measurements with the fabricated samples are presented. The results validate the design procedure and show that the fabrication method is feasible.
