Light propagation in turbid tissue-like scattering media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputChapter


This chapter is an overview of the theories and derived models routinely employed to describe light transport in turbid tissue-like scattering media. The relative merits and drawbacks of the models are discussed, and commonly used terms are highlighted. For the main purpose of the further development of a comprehensive computational model of light-tissue interaction, we present an approach for modeling coherent polarized light propagation in turbid scattering media. The temporal coherence of light, linear and circular polarization, interference, and the helicity flip of circularly polarized light due to diffuse reflection are taken into account.
