Abstract

The surface polarization scattering is investigated in terms of the coherence matrix for the electric field scattered from a birefringent material with a random interface between its surface and air. The relationship between the statistical properties of the scattered light at the scattering surface and the micro-structure of the anisotropic media has been explored for the first time to understand the underlying mechanism of the surface scattering phenomena for the electric field with random states of polarization.
