Results of studies of several properties of surface plasmon polaritons on structured surfaces are described, together with results for the scattering of surface plasmon polaritons by various surface defects. In addition, results of rigorous calculations of the scattering of electromagnetic waves from clean or coated two-dimensional randomly rough metal surfaces, and from two-dimensional randomly rough perfectly conducting and dielectric surfaces are presented. Properties of partially coherent light are investigated, and several types of metallic microlenses are studied.
