Model Mie scattering and light propagation through a high scattering medium using Monte Carlo simulation
Southern Connecticut State University
In this project, we will first use numerical approaches to model light scattering off single particles using Monte Carlo simulation. We will obtain results that follow Rayleigh scattering and Mie scattering. The program will then be extended to simulate light propagation in a highly scattering turbid medium like biological tissue which consists of various arrangements of particles and bulk geometry and calculate the light distribution in the medium and on the boundary. The program will eventually be used for imaging tumors in biological tissue, which will be achieved through an inverse problem.
