Abstract

We study the spatial coherence of an optical beam in a strongly scattering medium confined in a slab geometry. Using the radiative transfer equation, we study numerically the behavior of the transverse spatial coherence length in the different transport regimes. Transitions from the ballistic to the diffusive regimes are clearly identified.
