The cross-spectral density function of the scattered field that is produced by scattering of a coherent plane light wave incident on a collection of different types of anisotropic particles is derived. We show the phenomena of interference of the fields scattered by each of the particles in the system. Numerical results indicate that the information about the shape, the distance, and the relative orientation of the particles may be obtained from far-zone measurements of the scattered field.
