We derive expressions for the intensity-intensity correlations of a field produced on scattering of a random field governed by Gaussian statistics from a particle with a deterministic or a random refractive index distribution. Our results generalize the ones in [Opt. Lett. 35, 4000, 2010] to the case of an arbitrarily correlated incident field. We consider as specific examples the cases of a single plane wave and two partially correlated plane waves incident upon the scatterer.
