Abstract

Like- and cross-polarized scattering cross sections are determined at optical frequencies for conducting cylinders with rough surfaces. Both normal and oblique incidence with respect to the cylinder axis are considered. The full wave approach is used to account for both the specular point scattering and the diffuse scattering. For the roughness scales considered, the scattering cross sections differ significantly from those derived for smooth or slightly rough conducting cylinders. Several illustrative examples are presented and the albedos for smooth and rough cylinders are compared.
