Light propagation in multilayered scattering media beyond the diffusive regime.
We describe a method to solve the radiative transfer equation (RTE) in multilayered geometry with index mismatch and demonstrate its potential for modeling light propagation in biological systems. The method is compared to Monte Carlo simulations with high accuracy but is much more efficient in terms of computer time. We illustrate the potential of the method by studying a multilayered system containing a weakly scattering layer surrounded by highly scattering layers, with anisotropic scattering and index mismatched interfaces. The calculation of directional transmitted fluxes has shown that the RTE method can be used to calculate relevant quantities in realistic systems in the presence of non-diffusive behavior.
