Abstract

We show that a scattering–reduction effect is obtained by coating a rough surface with an antireflection layer. This research is a generalization of Amra’s [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 10, 365– 374 ( 1993)] study of smooth surfaces conducted with a first-order theory to the case of rough surfaces. We show that the differential method with the R matrix algorithm can be used to study scattering from multilayered rough surfaces. A comparison between numerical and experimental results is given.
