Paper Abstract

We present here the numeric study of the propagation of polarized coherent complex light in turbid media with Electric field Monte Carlo (EMC) approach. EMC is one unique Monte Carlo method suitable for simulating coherent phenomenon of multiple scattering light. EMC has been extended to explicitly incorporate the complex incident wave front of coherent complex light and used to investigate the interaction of coherent complex light with highly scattering turbid media such as biological tissue. We will report the dependence of the decay of the beam intensity and the loss of the polarization over the penetration depth on the orbital angular momentum of the complex light and the scattering properties of a turbid medium. The potential application of complex light in imaging turbid media will be discussed.
