Paper Abstract

There are a number of interesting experimental and Monte Carlo results regarding the persistence of polarization in turbid media; however, there is not a good theoretical understanding of this phenomenon. These results include circular polarization memory in strongly scattering anisotropic media and the impact of polydisperse scatterers on the depolarization rate. In this work we use the spectrum of the discretized vector radiative transport equation to investigate to study circular depolarization in strongly scattering media.
