Incoherent diffuse scattering by irregular shaped particles of finite conductivity

The incoherent diffuse scattering intensities (modified Stokes parameters) are evaluated for infrared and optical excitations at oblique incidence upon a layer consisting of random distributions of finitely conducting irregular shaped particles. The full wave approach is used to determine the elements of the phase matrix and the extinction matrix appearing in the equation of transfer. The rough surface height of the particles is characterized by its surface height spectral density function.
