scattering coefficient

scattering coefficient

[′skad·ə·riŋ ‚kō·i‚fish·ənt]
(electromagnetism)
One of the elements of the scattering matrix of a waveguide junction; that is, a transmission or reflection coefficient of the junction.
(physics)
The fractional decrease in intensity of a beam of electromagnetic radiation or particles per unit distance traversed, which results from scattering rather than absorption. Also known as dissipation coefficient.
