The distribution function of transmission matrix eigenvalues for an interface with a high density of randomly distributed scatterers is calculated from the Schrödinger equation. The distribution function is universal in the sense that it does not depend on the microscopic parameters. It differs, however, from the well-known universal distribution for diffusive bulk conductors.
