This web page was created in support of the papers "Three Monte Carlo programs of polarized light transport into scattering media: part I & 2". The three Monte Carlo programs portrayed in the papers are availabe here for download with some instruction.
A polarized light Monte Carlo program must keep track of the polarization reference plane
Unpolarized light Monte Carlo programs have been around for some time. Some of them are available here.
The Polarized light Monte Carlo programs described here keep track of the status of polarization of light traveling through a scattering media. In the Monte Carlo programs presented here the scatterers are microspheres. These codes use a Mie scattering program to calculate the scattering coefficients of the scattering matrix.
An important issue in Polarized light Monte Carlo is the tracking of the polarization reference frame. We show three different methods to do so
Installing and running the programs
These programs were developed in C programming language, they were compiled and tested in Red Hat Linux 7 and MacOsX-Unix (we were also able to run them in a Knoppix environment)
All program were tested in Linux Red Hat, Knoppix, and MacOSX under the Unix terminal
Here are step by step instructions on how to run these programs
