backscattering

[′bak¦skad·ə·riŋ]
Also known as back radiation; backward scattering.
(communications)
Propagation of extraneous signals by F- or E-region reflection in addition to the desired ionospheric scatter mode; the undesired signal enters the antenna through the back lobes.
(electromagnetism)
Radar echoes from a target.
Undesired radiation of energy to the rear by a directional antenna.
(physics)
The deflection of radiation or nuclear particles by scattering processes through angles greater than 90° with respect to the original direction of travel.
