Abstract

Rough surfaces in translucent protective sheets are used in imaging systems, such as displays, to decrease specular reflections of external sources. However, they modify the quality of the images formed by transmission. Using a geometric approximation, we have modeled the behavior of rough surfaces in imaging systems. This model provides an analytical expression for the modulation transfer function of rough surfaces.
