Abstract

We present a theoretical and experimental study of the scattering of light by double passage through a system that consists of a strong diffuser, a piece of birefringent crystal, and a plane mirror. We show that this arrangement can produce not only enhanced backscattering and satellite peaks but also satellite dips in the angular distribution of the mean intensity. The experiments are in agreement with theoretical results based on scalar diffraction theory in the paraxial approximation.
