The scattering of the polychromatic plane light wave incident upon rotational quasi-homogeneous anisotropic media is investigated. It is different from the light wave scattered by quasi-homogeneous isotropic medium in that the spectral shift can be produced by the rotation of the anisotropic medium. We derive the analytical formula for the spectrum of the scattered field and show some numerical examples.
