Recently, an interesting phenomenon has been reported as a result of a series of optical backscattering experiments conducted using collimated light sources (lasers). A locally high intensity maximum has been observed in the range of π-ε<θ<π + ε where e is of the order of milliradians and 0 = πit is the backscattering direction. Albeit similar phenomena found in backscattering from various random media, e.g., Anderson localization, light scattering from random rough surfaces, this is the first observation of enhanced backscattering from suspensions.
