The roughness and texture of rough fused-silica surfaces can be characterized by an infrared ellipsometer operating at 5-μm wavelength and at multiple angles of incidence. Anisotropy of the rough surface layer is included in the ellipsometric calculation based on the effective medium theory. The standard deviation of the measured points differs from the theoretical predictions by only two time the precision of the instrument (±0.01) deg in polarizer, analyzer, and angle of incidence). The effective thickness deduced by ellipsometry agrees with the average rms roughness measured by a stylus profilometer. The depolarization factor deduced by ellipsometry can distinguish the textures of the rough surfaces, and it agrees with the average height-to-half-width ratio of voids by stylus profilometry.
