Abstract

The three-dimensional radiative transfer equation is solved in the spatial frequency domain for modeling the light propagation due to a spatially modulated light source obliquely incident on a semi-infinite uniform medium. The dependence of the derived solution on the spatial frequencies as well as on position and direction is found analytically. The main computational procedure arises from the determination of several constants obtained by a system of linear equations. The obtained equations are verified and illustrated by comparisons with Monte Carlo simulations and the diffusion approximation, respectively.
