Paper Abstract

In this work we analyze the impact of linear birefringence on biological tissues depolarization, which is essential for correctly interpreting experimental results. Our approach is based on the polarized light Monte Carlo method in transmission. We present a comparative analysis of light depolarization in biological tissues with different values of linear birefringence and particle sizes, in order to evaluate its impact on the calculated parameters.
