Abstract

We present a model for calculating the angular distribution of light, including polarization effects from multilayered inhomogeneous media, with an index of refraction mismatch between layers. The model is based on the resolution of the radiative transfer equation by the discrete ordinate method. Comparisons with previous simpler models and examples of simulations are presented.
