Paper Abstract

In the work the medium inhomogeneities are considered as the optical parameter deviations from a certain mean values and represented by a random spatial 'pulse' process. These 'pulses' are supposed to have arbitrary geometrical forms, random parameters and random locations and orientations in space. We obtain the general analytical representation for the characteristic functional, autocorrelation function and Wiener-Khinchin's spectrum of the modeling process, that are applicable to various geometry of scattering objects and may be easy calculated. The corresponding relations contain statistical moments of geometrical and optical parameters of scattering centers and their spatial density. As an example the obtained relations are written for the medium with the spheroidal irregularities. The introduced model of the random continuous scattering medium may be useful in the classification of the solutions of the inverse problem of light interactions with homogeneous medium and in the noninvasive diagnostics.
