Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo program for simulation of polarized light propagation in scattering media was developed. By comparing the results of this program (angularly resolved independent Müller matrix elements S11, S21, S34 and S44) with analytical solutions of Maxwell equations, a testing method for Monte Carlo programs simulating polarized light propagation was found. A further goal was to quantitatively point out the differences between solutions of radiative transfer theory and Maxwell theory for polarized light.
