Coherent Fields and Images in Remote Sensing by Valery I. Mandrosov

By Valery I. Mandrosov

Coherent fields and pictures grants major information regarding distant items in a number of useful methods. This quantity considers a number of coherent phenomena, together with using coherent distant sensing to procure information regarding the dynamic parameters of distant items, using Fourier telescopy for detailed imaging of distant items in a turbulent surroundings, and using time-background holography for distant sensing of relocating items. The publication is meant for the large group of researchers and engineers drawn to coherent phenomena and their purposes, plus senior and graduate scholars focusing on this field.

28) where k(r) = k(r, ω0 ). Furthermore, E(ρ, t) will be called the complex amplitude of the field scattered by the object under study (or simply the field amplitude). 3 This notion is discussed in more detail in Appendix 4. Thus, one can see from Eqs. 28) that the field scattered by an object with random surface roughness is related to the roughness height distribution—namely, to deviations ξ(r,t) from the mean surface—via integral relations. , determining the properties of objects and identifying these objects by means of the scattered field.

12 We can also use this relation for calculating the field formed by a smooth surface. Under a weaker condition, q · Nσ λ, the approximate equality E0 (ρ) ≈ Em (ρ) holds. This describes the well-known fact that beams incident at grazing angles are almost totally reflected; the condition q · Nσ λ corresponds to the grazing incidence of the beams at steep parts of the surface. The last statement should be formulated with caution, since the surface of a real object is a complicated superposition of microscopic roughness elements of different scales.

As a result, the intensity distribution in the scattered field is a speckle pattern with contrast less than unity. It is reasonable to define this field as a partially coherent field. If Lc < 10λ, where λ = (2πc)/ω0 , then the scattered field is noncoherent (see Appendix 4). As an example of a coherent field, one can consider the field E(ρ, t) scattered by a large surface area of an object illuminated by a pointlike source that is “almost monochromatic” (see Appendix 4), in the sense that its coherence length exceeds by far any typical depth of the object’s scattering surface.
