Abstract

The traditional Monte Carlo technique of photon transport in random media describes only single point properties of light, such as its intensity. Here we demonstrate an approach that extends these capabilities to simulations involving properties of spatial coherence, a two-point characteristic of light. Numerical experiments illustrate the use of this Monte Carlo technique for describing the propagation of partially spatially coherent light through random multiply scattering media.
