Abstract

The interaction of an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model beam with a semi-rough target located in atmospheric turbulence was studied by means of a tensor method, and the corresponding inverse problem was analyzed. The equivalent model was set up on the basis of a bistatic laser radar system and a rough target located in a turbulent atmosphere. Through mathematical deduction, we obtained detailed information about the parameters of the semi-rough target by measuring the beam radius, coherence radius of the incident beam and the polarization properties of the returned beam.
