Title: Spectral changes of light produced by scattering from disordered anisotropic media

Abstract

We investigate theoretically changes in the spectrum of polychromatic light scattered by a disordered, birefringent medium. We derive an expression for the spectrum of scattered light for ordinary and extraordinary incident waves within the accuracy of the first Born approximation. Using this result, we analyze the changes in the spectrum of light due to the combined action of disorder and anisotropy in the scattering process.
