Abstract

We present a model to determine the light scattered by a metallic cylinder with longitudinal structures when the cylinder is illuminated by a Gaussian light beam in oblique incidence. The model is based on an approximate solution to the Helmholtz–Kirchhoff integral by means of the stationary-phase method. We have studied the variations of the diffraction pattern in terms of the size of the defect and other geometrical parameters. The width of the beam and the misalignment between the beam and the cylinder have also been considered, as well as the optical properties of the surface.
