Paper Abstract

The backscattering of an optical wave from arbitrary convex dielectric objects with rough surfaces is investigated and the formulas for calculating the backscattering cross section of both coherent and incoherent fields are obtained. In the infrared waveband, the influence of the geometry, permittivity, and statistic characteristic of the rough surface on backscattering cross section is analyzed, making use of rough ellipsoids as examples.
