Half-space Green functions and T-matrix theory is used to predict that scattering on discrete dopants close to a perfect interface generates strong deviations from scattering in the bulk. Interference between the scattered wave and its reflection from the interface leads to a dipolar scattering rate. By introducing de-coherence the transition to bulk scattering is described quantitatively for strongly screened Coulomb scattering.
