Time-resolved measurements were performed to determine the coherence and polarization lengths in terms of the transport scattering length for highly scattering layer media. The randomization of coherence occurs at thickness (L) greater than three transport scatterers lengths (L>3 lt) and the polarization disappears after five transport scatterers lengths (L>5 lt).
