We estimate parameters of time asymptotics of the polarized radiation flow emitting from a semi-infinite layer of the scattering and absorbing substance illuminated by an external directed source. Calculations on a multiprocessor cluster demonstrate that, in this case, polarization has no effect on parameters of the asymptotics of reflected radiation determining the “backscattering noise” in optical sensing. For bounded media, parameters of the polarized and nonpolarized radiation asymptotics are different, depending on the size of the transfer region; i.e., depolarization of the radiation flow is slightly delayed relative to the passage to asymptotics.
