Paper Abstract

A novel Monte Carlo simulation algorithm is presented for modeling the time evolution of diffuse light backscattering in a highly turbid medium. The computational approach is based on the Mie scattering theory and uses the Stokes vector-Mueller matrix formalism for simulating the polarized light propagation. We applied the algorithm to calculate a time sequence of 2D Mueller matrices (time resolved two-dimensional polarization patterns) characterizing the temporal evolution of a scattering process in a turbid medium. The generated time-resolved 2D Mueller matrices are compared to time-resolved 2D Mueller matrices obtained experimentally [1].
