In science:

We investigate the dependence of the scattering properties (band gaps and Anderson localization) on the wavelength, strength of randomness and relative angle of the incident wave.
Light Scattering on Random Dielectric Layers
The non-monotonous behavior of γx with respect to the angle ϕ might be related to the fact that the mechanism of localization is due to interference of different parts of the scattered wave.
Light Scattering on Random Dielectric Layers
The strength of the latter depends crucially on the wavelength and the relative angle of the incident wave.
