Abstract

In dealing with random EM fields, ensemble averaging is an ubiquitous procedure. However, we demonstrate that spatial non-stationarities such as enhanced backscattering can be identified even from one single realization (snapshot) of the wave interaction with a random medium. Fourth-order correlations between field components at two different spatial points are shown to provide the necessary information. (c) 2008 Optical Society of America.
