Abstract

The far-zone spectral isotropy of light radiated from a secondary planar quasi-homogeneous (QH) source scattering on a QH medium has been discussed. Without assuming the specified function of incident light, a sufficient condition for the far-zone spectral isotropy has been expressed as a new scaling law, which is analogous with the scaling law for weak scattering in previous works. Special examples are discussed to validate the obtained scaling law.
