This book covers both experimental and theoretical aspects of nanoscale light scattering and surface roughness. Topics include: spherical particles located on a substrate; surface and buried interface roughness; surface roughness of polymer thin films; magnetic and thermal fluctuations at planar surfaces; speckle patterns; scattering of electromagnetic waves from a metal; multiple wavelength light scattering; nanoroughness standards.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This book presents an up-to-date survey of theoretical and experimental studies of rough surface scattering of electromagnetic waves. … It should be of interest to scientists and graduate students, especially those investigating areas in nanotechnology such as the effect of light scattering of quasi-particle nonlinear optics involving surface plasmons. This book can be used as a reference for a course on nanotechnology … ." (Hsiung Hsu, Optics and Photonics News, May, 2007)
