Abstract:

This report summarizes results obtained in the study of how waves are reflected and transmitted by a randomly layered medium. Temporally pulsed energy plane wave, beam or radiated energy from a localized source illuminates this material. Work that was initially done for the acoustic problem has been extended to the electromagnetic problem. An extensive simulation study has confirmed the applicability of this theory. Recent work has considered radiation from a monochromatic point source in the presence of a randomly layered medium.
