Coherent light scattering of heterogeneous randomly rough films and effective medium in the theory of electromagnetic wave multiple scattering
Abstract
We have developed a general formalism based on Green's functions to calculate the coherent electromagnetic field scattered by a random medium with rough boundaries. The approximate expression derived makes it possible to determine the effective permittivity, which is generalised for a layer of an inhomogeneous random medium with different types of particles and bounded with randomly rough interfaces. This effective permittivity describes the coherent propagation of an electromagnetic wave in a random medium with randomly rough boundaries. We have obtained an expression, which contains the Maxwell – Garnett formula at the lowfrequency limit, and the Keller formula; the latter has been proved to be in good agreement with experiments for particles whose dimensions are larger than a wavelength.

We present a framework for the stochastic features of the polarization state of an electromagnetic wave propagating through the optical medium with both deterministic (controlled) and disordered birefringence. In this case, the Stokes parameters obey a Langevintype equation on the Poincare sphere. The functional integral method provides for a natural tool to derive the FokkerPlanck equation for the probability distribution of the Stokes parameters. We solve the FokkerPlanck equation in the case of a random anisotropic active medium submitted to a homogeneous electromagnetic field. The possible dissipation and relaxation phenomena are studied in general and in various cases, and wemore »

Scattering of electromagnetic waves from twodimensional randomly rough perfectly conducting surfaces: The full angular intensity distribution
By a computer simulation approach we study the scattering of p or spolarized light from a twodimensional, randomly rough, perfectly conducting surface. The pair of coupled inhomogeneous integral equations for two independent tangential components of the magnetic field on the surface are converted into matrix equations by the method of moments, which are then solved by the biconjugate gradient stabilized method. The solutions are used to calculate the mean differential reflection coefficient for given angles of incidence and specified polarizations of the incident and scattered fields. The full angular distribution of the intensity of the scattered light is obtained formore » 
Multiple scattering and intensity fluctuations in optical coherent tomography of randomly inhomogeneous media
An expression for signal intensity fluctuations in optical coherent tomography has been obtained for the first time in the framework of the theory of the multiple scattering of lowcoherent optical radiation in a random medium. The contribution of the multiple scattering of lowcoherent radiation backscattered from a randomly inhomogeneous layer, as well as the speckles of the interference component in optical coherent tomography, has been calculated. 
Analysis, by the Monte Carlo method, of the validity of the diffusion approximation in a study of dynamic multiple scattering of light in randomly inhomogeneous media
A numerical simulation is reported of dynamic multiple (isotropic and anisotropic) scattering of light in a randomly inhomogeneous medium representing a suspension of lightscattering Brownian particles. The results of a simulation of the temporal autocorrelation function of backscattered light are compared with calculations carried out within the framework of the diffusion approximation for the radiation transport equation. It is shown that, although the diffusion approximation describes incorrectly loworder scattering, it is quite acceptable for dealing with highorder scattering.
