Paper Abstract

The backscattering signal at small grazing angles is very important for vehicle re-entrance and missile tracking applications. It is also useful in FTIR grazing angle microscopy. Recently, we performed an experimental study of the far-field scattering at small grazing angles, especially the enhanced backscattering at grazing angles. For a randomly weak rough dielectric film on a reflecting metal substrate, a much larger enhanced backscattering peak is measured.
