Abstract : We have been conducting a combined theoretical and experimental research program in the field of enhanced backscattering from randomly rough metal and dielectric surfaces. The principal goal of this study is to improve our understanding of the mechanism responsible for the enhanced backscattering phenomenon. At the same time, the results we obtained will apply to remote sensing and radar clutter research.... Enhanced backscattering, Electromagnetic wave, Scattering, Statistical optics, Remote sensing.
