Abstract

It is shown that in the presence of diffusion of electromagnetic waves in random media containing large discrete scatterers, circular polarization can persist even after the radiation flux is isotropized. For scattering exactly in the backward direction, this effect is manifested as an increase in the interference contribution to the cross-polarized component of the intensity as the size of the scatterers increases.
