Abstract

In this study the authors develop a mathematical model that relates the backscattering cross sections within the scope of the physical optics method for the case in which polarized optical radiation interacts with an oriented semitransparent circular plate. For the polarization signal backscattering from a set of oriented circular plates, a theoretical investigation of the depolarization relation is carried out. For the calculation of the orientation angles of the plates in the scattering volume an algorithm is presented.
