  • Abstract: o the finite width of the incident beam, we are able to study the scattering of an electromagnetic surface wave by a one-dimensional rough surface. For obvious Numerical reasons, strong localization of the surface wave can only be exhibited provided the localization length does not exceed a value in the order of a few tens of the wavelength. With this aim, a special attention is devoted to surfaces obtained by random perturbation of a grating in the vicinity of Bragg resonance. The results are in agreement with former theoretical and experimental work on acoustic surface waves.
