The beam diffusing properties of stacked layers of diffuser material were evaluated experimentally and compared to a Gaussian random phase screen model. The model was found to give promising accuracy in combination with a Lorentzian auto-correlation model. The tail behaviour of the angular scattering distribution as a function of number of diffusing layers was particularly well described by the model, and in the case of an amorphous carbon diffuser, the model could describe the whole of the scattering distribution convincingly.
