Paper Abstract

Some topics on the light scattering phenomena in random mass fractals are reviewed. First, the basic property of the single forward scattering is introduced. Then, as an example of multiple scattering effects from fractal media, fractal dependence of coherent peaks in the enhanced backscattering is discussed. These two types of scattering phenomena in mass fractals are interesting from a diagnostic or analyzing viewpoint of fractal optics. On the other hand, the third one treats with the generation of fractal speckles, aiming at optical synthesis of desired fractality. Simple methods for producing random intensity distributions with mass fractal properties in diffraction and image regions are described.
