When a translucent rough surface is illuminated, light is diffused in different directions. The envelope the intensity distribution is called diffusion curve. As the diffuser is rotated with respect to the incident beam, the diffuser curve changes its appearance: the maximum suffers a displacement and changes its shape. Some authors have studied this phenomenon, but none of them explained it properly. In this work we make an additional contribution to address the problem, showing experimentally that the maximum displacement depends on the incident angle and the diffuser ratio T/(sigma) . We compare our experimental results with those that can be calculated with the reformulated Beckmann's theory. We could observe important agreements and differences. For example, Beckmann's theory predicts that the diffusion results are asymmetric, while our measured results are indefectibly symmetric.
