Paper Abstract

Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography is a new important technique in biomedical imaging. To describe PS- OCT we have developed a Monte Carlo model for polarized light propagation in a multiple layered birefringent scattering medium based on the Jones formalism. Our algorithm makes it possible to derive the depth-resolved Stokes vector and Mueller matrix, which provides a compete characterization of the optical polarization properties of a biological tissue.
