Diffuse Reflection

The reflection of rays from a rough surface. The reflected rays do not leave at fixed angles. Energy is scattered uniformly in many directions and temporally dispersed.

The intensity will fall-off as the inverse of the square of the distance away from the surface and also obey a Cosine Law of reflection.
