Abstract
An experimental analysis has been made of the light scattering from particulate surfaces as a function of the surface particle density. The samples were composed of a conducting flat substrate seeded with spherical metallic particles whose radius is on the order of the wavelength of the incident radiation (λ = 0.633 μm). We analyze how the multiple-scattering effect evolves as the separation between particles changes. From a theoretical point of view, we have applied a ray-tracing method to obtain the scattered intensities. These were compared with the experimental results. Good basic agreement was found, especially in the backscattering region.
