Paper Abstract

Measurements of the temporal correlation of both co- and cross-polarised returns around the enhanced backscat-tering cone of a dense collection of latex spheres are presented. The correlation time shows completely different variation with angle in the two cases and an explanation of this is given. The photon statistics have also been measured for co- and cross-polarised intensities. The normalised factorial moments of the photon counts (which equal to normalised intensity moments) are independent of angle (for angle within 15mrad of backscatter) and detecting polarisations, and they are in agreement with those derived from gamma intensity distribution with the descriptive parameter u=1.20.
