None Questions about spike constant and sigmaalpha

Hi everyone!

I was writing a work and I have some questions that I don't know if I understand or not.

QUESTION: I have a ground surface,dielectric-dielectric with specular spike constant set to one and specular lobe constant set to zero, if I change sigmaalpha, the results of the processes happening in this surface should not change because choosing specular spike one make the surface be polished and sigmaalpha is ignored(facet=surface).

But if I run two identical simulation only changing sigmaalpha the behaviour of the surface change. Not only the times of one process happens, the incident and exit angles in the facets and surfaces too. Can somebody help me to understand this?

Thank you very much
