By formal definition, a speckle pattern is a pattern made up of irregularly spaced dots (specs). In optics, the speckle pattern is (usually) created by interference between a great number of wavelets with random phase values. These wavelets are formed when coherent light is reflected from a rough surface or transmitted through a diffusing media.
