Paper Abstract

Correlation and spectral characteristics of coherent radiation intensity scattered by a rough surface which rotates in its own plane are analyzed. With the laser spot smaller than the distance from the spot center to the rotation axis the correlation functions of intensity for a rotating and a rectilinearly moving surface are shown to be equal. The experimental power spectrum of scattered radiation with (lambda) equals 0.63 micrometers fits the theoretical findings.
