Effects of nondiffusive wave propagation upon coherent backscattering by turbid media

Modern Trends in Laser Physics


The nondiffusive contribution to the coherent backscattering intensity is calculated for the media with relatively large particles (size a is greater than wavelength λ). The results are in good agreement with the experimental data at the wings of the angular spectrum of the coherent backscattering. The shape of the backscattering peak is analyzed for strongly absorbing media. The correlation function of the intensity fluctuations is calculated for the scattering by Brownian particles at relatively large time shifts.
