The model predicts that the intensity of the diffused light will be constant for any viewer angle, and that undiffused light will reflect light more intensely in some areas when viewed at certain angles.
The difference between undiffused and diffused light on stainless steel does not end with how the light reflects off the steel.
When the light from a LED is diffused, it will cause the intensity of the light reflected by steel to depend on the viewing angle, reducing the variation seen on the steel, while also making the light source large compared to the surface features, eliminating both shadowing and masking.
