abstract

The advantages of using method Monte Carlo for simulation of radiative transfer in complex turbid random media like biological tissues are well recognized. However, in most practical applications the wave nature of probing optical radiation is ignored, and its propagation is considered in terms of neutral particles, so-called photon packets. Nevertheless, when the interference, polarization or coherent effects of scattering of optical/laser radiation constitute the fundamental principle of a particular optical technique the wave nature of optical radiation must be considered and taken into account. In current report we present the state-of-the art and the development prospects for application of method Monte Carlo to the point of taking into account the wave properties of optical radiation. We also introduce a novel Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) paradigm accelerated by Graphics Processing Unit that provides an opportunity to escalate the performance of standard Monte Carlo simulation up to 100 times.
