Abstract

Scattering of polychromatic light by a medium whose dielectric susceptibility is a random function of position is considered within the accuracy of the first Born approximation. It is shown, in particular, that if the two-point spatial correlation function of the dielectric susceptibility has Gaussian form and the spectrum of the incident light has a Gaussian profile, the spectrum of the scattered light may be shifted toward the shorter or the longer wavelengths, depending on the angle of scattering. The results are analogous to those derived recently in connection with radiation from partially coherent sources [ Nature (London) 326, 363 ( 1987)].
