Description: In this interactive animation with an angle resolved scatterometer, the reflected light is measured over a large range of scattering angles. Roughness with long periods causes near specular scattering, while a surface with short periods causes more diffuse scattering. Note that the height of the roughness does not determine the scattering angle, only the period.
Keywords: goniometer • scattering angle • roughness
