Abstract:

This report consists of publications and preprints on topics related to acoustical and optical scattering and to laser optoacoutic sources of sound. The emphasis of Papers 1 and 2 is on the understanding of the enhanced backscattering from spheres associated with axial focusing. The emphasis on Paper 3 is on the modeling of certain cross-polarization and copolarization effects due to the scattering of laser light from small bubbles in water or from fog.
