Abstract

The polarization-resolved electric field autocorrelation function for <i>p</i>-order scattering was derived from the order-of-scattering solution of the exact equations for electromagnetic multiple Rayleigh scattering and was calculated for 2 ≤ <i>p</i> ≤ 6 for particles undergoing diffusive motion in an idealized sample cell. It was found that the polarization-channel and the scattering-angle dependence of the <i>p</i>-order autocorrelation function approximately decoupled from the delay-time dependence for <i>p</i> ≳ 3. The polarization-channel and the scattering-angle dependence were analytically calculated, and the delay-time dependence was analytically approximated. The resulting analytical model for the polarization-resolved autocorrelation function for beginning multiple Rayleigh scattering was then tested against experimental autocorrelation data. The data were found to be well fitted by the model.
