Abstract:

Our research has been concerned with statistical properties of radiation in scattering processes which resulted in publications dealing with coherence effects in Mie scattering. We generalized the well-known Gouy phase anomaly from stigmatic to astigmatic beams. We extended the theory of refraction and reflection of electromagnetic beams of any state of spatial coherence. We presented new results relating to the concept of purity and introduced the concept of polarization purity. We analyzed spectral changes of stochastic beams, generated on deterministic media. Propagation of light beams through multi-layered stratified media was studied. Also, effects of scattering on cross-spectral purity of light was studied.
