Abstract

The enhanced-backscattering (EBS) phenomenon is investigated for the case in which a phase screen is placed close to a multiple-scattering medium. This situation results in a narrowing of the EBS peak that depends on the strength and the position of the phase screen. The resulting enhancement peak is essentially the sum of two contributions: the EBS produced by the multiple-scattering medium in the absence of the phase screen and the enhancement obtained when the multiple-scattering medium is replaced by a plane mirror.
