Abstract

The bidirectional spectral reflectance of a set of V-grooved surfaces has been investigated in an attempt to separate the influences of the mean slope and the peak-to-valley height. The experimental results show good agreement with the theoretical models in both the geometrical optics and diffraction ranges.
