Experimental results on the angular distribution of the light scattered by a one-dimensional gold-coated randomly rough surface in a conical configuration are presented. Several polarizations are considered for the incident and the detected intensities. The surface profile of the sample constitutes a good approximation to a Gaussian random process with a Gaussian correlation function. Effects related to the phenomenon of enhanced backscattering are observed.
