Wave scattering from a human cornea illuminated with a submillimeter-wave Gaussian beam is explored with Fourier analysis. This new approach enabled us to investigate the cornea as a coated sphere rather than a homogenized one. The cornea was modeled as an aqueous spherical shell using effective medium theory, with 60 percent water, enclosing a sphere of pure water. The corneal model was illuminated at 220 GHz – 330 GHz. The interaction of the incident and back-reflected beam, back-scattered field, and back-scattering from one usual beam-cornea alignment scheme were evaluated; beam waist collocated with the surface apex. The result indicates the amount of difference between the reflection from planar stratified and back-scattering from the cornea in the case of focusing the beam waist at the corneal apex.
