Abstract

The statistical properties of the scattered light from a moving random birefringence screen is investigated in terms of the mutual coherence matrix for the electric field. The relationship between the statistical characteristics of the scattered light from the scattering surface and the microstructure of the anisotropic medium is explored to understand the potential mechanism of the surface scattering phenomenon of electric fields with random polarization states and the proposed method provides a convenient means to realize the depolarization and decoherence.
