The correlation between surface profiles of nanostructures and the behavior of scattered light, including specular and diffuse components, is demonstrated in detail. The nanorod arrays with large alignment variation exhibit broadband and omnidirectional anti-reflection properties due to the gradual index profile. This work provides insight into further structural design for nanostructured optoelectronic applications.
