Abstract

We study theoretically the generation and scattering of second harmonic light at randomly rough metallic interfaces. For surfaces with relatively large roughness and slopes, we find that the angular distribution of the scattered light at the harmonic frequency displays well-defined minima in the backscattering direction, and show that this effect is due to destructive interference between waves that have been multiply scattered in the valleys of the surface. It is also shown that the complex amplitudes obtained at the frequency 2ω when the positions of the source and detector are exchanged exhibit some degree of anticorrelation.
