Abstract
Based on the capability of confocal microscopy to profile rough surfaces, Quartel and Sheppard have proposed an algorithm to reconstruct surface profiles from scattering data. We determine the range of applicability of the algorithm by investigating the effects of the roughness and correlation length of a random surface on the reconstruction.
