Abstract

A generalized Rician probability density function is used to model the first-order statistics of the optical field amplitudes scattered from an optically rough object containing a number of glints, under monochromatic, spatially coherent illumination. Numerical evaluations of analytic results for the special case of a rough object containing two glints of constant and equal strength compare favorably with computer simulations.
