Deterministic mode representation (DMR) is introduced for a three-dimensional random medium with a statistically stationary refractive index distribution. The DMR allows for the designing and fine tuning of novel random media by adjusting the weights of individual deterministic modes. To illustrate its usefulness, we have applied the decomposition to the problem of weak light scattering from a Gaussian Schell-model medium. In particular, we have shown how individual deterministic modes of the medium contribute to the scattered far-field spectral density distribution.
