Abstract:The enhanced backscattering cone displaying a strong anisotropy from a material with anisotropic diffusion is reported. The constructive interference of the wave is preserved in the helicity preserving polarization channel and completely lost in the nonpreserving one. The internal reflectivity at the interface modifies the width of the backscatter cone. The reflectivity coefficient is measured by angular-resolved transmission. This interface property is found to be isotropic, simplifying the backscatter cone analysis. The material used is a macroporous semiconductor, gallium phosphide, in which pores are etched in a disordered position but with a preferential direction.
