Paper Abstract

In the work, behavior of the elements of light scattering matrix (LSM) is investigated during the process of aggregation of proteins of the eye lens. We consider a system of spherical scatterers as a model of the lens. The Monte-Carlo method is used to trace migration and scattering of photons in a medium. Light scattering on the particles is described by the Mie formulas. We investigate influence of the multiple scattering on spatial and polarization characteristics of the scattered laser light accounting for the given geometry of the experiment and obtain angular dependencies of the LSM elements. Also the angular dependencies of weights of different orders of scattering are obtained. It is shown, that for small particle systems the influence of multiple scattering has a maximum for the scattering angle equal to 90 degrees. Finally, we discuss light depolarization in the lens.
