Paper Abstract

When a high-frequency electromagnetic wave propagating in a random medium is scattered by the embedded obstacles, the reflected backwards radiation can traverse through the same random inhomogeneities as the incident one, leading to the anomalous intensity distribution of the scattered radiation. Here, we construct the intensity response at the image plane of an optical system, resulting from a backward reflection from a target having discontinuities. The object plane - image plane relations are obtained by using the multiscale propagators for the coherence measures and the resolution effects are considered for point source - two-point scatterer configuration.
