Abstract

This paper is devoted to modeling of the light transport in refractive and weak scattering media by means of the vector radiative transfer equation. In refractive media polarization of light depends not only on the law of scattering but also on the refractive index distribution and can change along curved light trajectories according to the Rytov law of the polarization ellipse rotation. Results of numerical simulations are presented in the form of CCD camera images, which is how data are acquired in tomographic imaging experiments.
