Paper Abstract

The paper addresses the problem of extending conventional Monte Carlo procedures to cases of multiple scattering in media with suspensions of non-spherical or chiral particles. Extinction coefficients of the media depend on polarization of radiation. Along the propagation path polarization of radiation changes, unless the field is polarized according to one of two particular modes. The relationship between these modes and the elements of the amplitude scattering matrix for the type of particle is shown by means of a simple formalism, tested with reference to simple shapes and orientation of the particles. Some possibilities for extending Monte Carlo procedures are suggested. A case of small chiral spheres is considered.
