Paper Abstract

By use of a stochastic-analytic approach a scattering theory is presented which describes the spatio-temporal distortion of time dependent laser irradation in a well mixed particulate medium as a series expansion in scattering orders. Although applicable to the general case of arbitrary phase function, the theory is elaborated here for the case of gaussian forward scattering, where it is the generalization of the theory derived by Tam and Zardecki (Optica acta 2b, 659 (1979)) for cw irradation. The individual terms of the series are derived from a general sequence of functions which are independent of the specific parameters of a given case and thus, once computed, can be applied to an arbitrary case of forward scattering.
