Paper Abstract

The polarization characteristic of laser backscattering from randomly rough surfaces is studied theoretically and experimentally in this paper. The effect of multiple scattering from rough surfaces is analyzed. The equation for the backscattering coefficient and the polarization of Gaussian rough surfaces are derived and the simulation is conducted under several certain conditions. The polarization characteristics of different materials with different shapes are measured. The experimental results and the simulated numerical values are compared and analyzed in detail.
