Abstract

The Equivalence theorem for the spectral density of light waves on weak scattering is discussed. It is shown that when a spatially coherent plane light wave is scattered from two entirely different media, the far-zone spectral density may have identical distribution provided the low-frequency antidiagonal spatial Fourier components of the correlation function of the media are the same. An example of light waves on scattering from a Gaussian Schell model medium is discussed, and the condition on which two different media may produce identical spectral densities is presented.
