Abstract

The backscatter cross sections for randomly oriented metallic flakes are derived using the full wave approach. The metallic flakes are characterized by their surface height spectral density function. Both specular point and Bragg scattering at optical frequencies are accounted for in a self-consistent manner. It is shown that the average normalized backscatter cross sections (per unit volume) for the randomly oriented metallic flakes are larger than that of metallic spheres.
