Abstract

By use of a numerical calculation based on Green’s integral equation, we study the near-field speckles produced by the random self-affine fractal surfaces of a dielectric medium. The speckle intensities evolve considerably in the near-field region, and the local fluctuations in them disappear before they have traversed the distance of a wavelength. The transition of the speckle contrast either on the surface or in the near field and in the neighborhood non-near-field regions depends on lateral correlation length ξ and roughness exponent α of the random surfaces.
