Within the accuracy of the first-order Born approximation, the far-zone behaviors of light waves on scattering from a particulate medium with two different types of particles, i.e., deterministic particles and random particles, have been discussed. It is shown that both the location of the deterministic particles and the distribution of the random particles in the system play roles in the far-zone scattered spectral density. It is also shown that the distribution of the spectral degree of coherence of the scattered field oscillates with the increase of the scattering angle, and the amplitude of the oscillation is closely related to the location of the deterministic particles and the distribution of the random particles.
