Abstract
The diffractive bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of a surface with one-dimensional roughness is derived from coherence theory using an expansion valid for large effective roughness. Expansion of the surface autocorrelation function in the limit leads to representative Cauchy and Gaussian BRDFs and an intermediate closed-form general solution, which is fit to specular-plane BRDF data from an aluminum satellite sample at the wavelengths 1.06 microns and 10.6 microns.
