Paper Abstract

In this work we have done theoretical investigations of polarization properties of the wave scattered by the rough surface in the scalar diffraction theory approach. The model of single scattering on the surface with smooth inhomogeneities has been used and the local values of Fresnel reflecting coefficients have been taken into account. By use of numerical calculation of diffraction integral in this approximation we have found the components of correlation matrix of scattered wave as the functions of statistical properties of rough surface and incident light beam parameters. The degree of polarization of scattered wave and polarization plane rotation have been calculated. The last effect can be useful for structural determination of anisotropic rough surfaces inhomogeneities.
