Paper Abstract

We present a method to determine the back reflected radiance from an isotropically scattering halfspace with matched boundary. The bonus of this method lies in the fact that it is capable, in principle, to handle the case of narrow beams, something which, to our knowledge, no other analytic method can do. Essentially, the method derives from a mathematical criterion that effectively forbids the existence of solutions to the transport equation which grown exponentially as one moves away from the surface and deeper into the medium. Preliminary calculations for infinitely wide beams yield results which agree well with what is found in literature.
