light scattering, spectral dependent medium, spectral density, spectral degree of coherence
The far-zone behavior of polychromatic light waves on scattering from an anisotrophic semi-soft boundary medium with spectral dependence was considered, and the spectral density and the spectral degree of coherence of the far-zone scattered field were investigated. It is shown that the distributions of the spectral density and the spectral degree of coherence of scattered field are closely related with the rms width, the center wavelength, and the maximum value of the center wavelength of the scattering potential of the scattering medium.
