Paper Abstract

The statistical property of the polarization speckle generated from scattering from a rough surface has been investigated theoretically. Under the Gaussian assumption of the random electric fields, the joint probability density function of the Stokes parameters has been derived. These results can be regarded as a development and extension of previous works on the fully developed polarization speckle where no constant specular background intensity exists. Our result provides more concise description about the surface roughness and surface anisotropy.
