Application of Integral Scattering Characteristics for Calculating the Spatiotemporal Light Field of a Point Isotropic Light Source

Abstract

An approach allowing one to calculate the spatiotemporal intensity distribution of light from a point source with the use of integral scattering characteristics is considered. Using this approach in practice has an undeniable advantage because it does not require knowing the scattering function for the whole range of angles, in particular, in the region of small angles where the measurement of the scattering phase function for media with predominantly forward scattering involves considerable experimental difficulties.
