Abstract

The properties of light scattered from material systems depend on the characteristics of input optical fields. We study numerically the effect of the state of spatial coherence on the properties of scattered fields. Using a customized coupled dipole technique, we demonstrate that this influence manifests in changes of the statistics of intensities scattered at different angles.
