We investigate the case when light is scattered by Gaussian-correlated, quasi-homogeneous, anisotropic media. The analytical expression for the cross-spectral density function of the scattered field that is produced by scattering of a polychromatic plane wave incident upon a Gaussian-correlated, quasi-homogeneous, anisotropic medium is derived by use of a tensor method. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the normalized spectral density and the spectral degree of coherence of the field scattered by the anisotropic scatterer in contrast with that scattered by the isotropic scatterer.
