Material Scattering

Of an electromagnetic wave, Scattering that is attributable to the intrinsic properties of the material through which the wave is propagating.

Note 1: Ionospheric scattering and Rayleigh Scattering are examples of material scattering. Note 2: In an optical fiber, material scattering is caused by micro-inhomogeneities in the refractive indices of the materials used to fabricate the fiber, including the dopants used to modify the Refractive Index profile.
