Paper Abstract

Stochastic Huygens describes a method of propagating a partially coherent source by sampling the Huygens wavelets that evolve from each point of the wavefront. The amplitude and phase of each wavelet is tracked as the light passes through the optical system. We have previously described how a partially coherent wavefront may be simulated by propagating an ensemble of wavefronts with specified first and second-order statistics through simple optical systems. In this work we extend the modeling effort to include an ensemble of phase (or scattering) screens that characterize thin microscope tissue samples in the optical path.
