Multiple Scattering from Random Rough Surfaces Using the Kirchhoff Approximation

N.C. Bruce, J.C. Dainty
1991 Journal of Modern Optics  
Numerical results for scattering of electromagnetic waves from a rough surface are presented and compared with experimental results . The method uses the Kirchhoff or physical optics approximation to separate the single and double scatter terms in the total scatter pattern . It is shown that enhanced backscatter occurs in the double scatter term as predicted by a simple ray picture of the scattering process .
