It is shown that the presence of an arbitrary body buried near a dielectric highly rough random surface produces a remarkable enhanced backscattering peak in the angular distribution of mean scattered intensity. This is in contrast with the distribution that the dielectric rough surface yields in the absence of the body. In order for the peak to appear, the surface must be very rough and the contrast between the dielectric constants of the body and the medium in which it is immersed must be 2… CONTINUE READING
