The optical wave scattering from one-dimensional (1D) lossy dielectric Gaussian random rough surface is studied. The tapered incident wave is introduced into the classical Kirchhoff approximation (KA), and the shadowing effect is also taken into account to make the KA results have a high accuracy. The definition of the bistatic scattering coefficient of the modified KA and the method of moment (MOM) are unified. The characteristics of the optical wave scattering from the lossy dielectric Gaussian random rough surface of different parameters are analyzed by implementing MOM.
