Monte Carlo for Polarized Light

The Monte Carlo program for simulating the propagation of polarized light through media was developed by Jessica Ramella-Roman, Scott Prahl and Steven Jacques, as reported in:

The movement of polarized light is treated as the propagation of a Stokes Vector of intensity, [I Q U V]T, for each of 4 sources of light, H, V, P, and R:

Hence, 16 output files are generates, HI, HQ, HU, HV, PI, PQ, PU, PV, etc., where each is the x-y map of escaping reflectance from a planar slab of tissue of specified thickness.
