Abstract:

The recent observation of a peak of scattered radiation at the plasma frequency from thin silver foils irradiated with light can be explained in terms of a small amount of surface roughness of the foils. The theory of such scattered radiation is presented and suggests that this phenomenon can be used to study the surface roughness of the foil. Author
