Backscattering response from periodic spatial patterns in random media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In wave-based remote sensing or radio-location of distant objects in a random medium, a high-frequency electromagnetic wave is scattered by object discontinuities, and portions of the scattered radiation can traverse the same random inhomogeneities as the initial incident field. The statistical dependence of the forward–backward travelling events results in an anomaly in the backscattered intensity pattern that carries information about the scattering object. The quality of this information depends on the ability to resolve the fine-structure elements. In this work we investigate the resolving properties of periodic spatial objects by using the random propagators of the stochastic geometrical theory of diffraction.
