Abstract

A generalized time-independent correlation transport equation (GCTE) is proposed for the field autocorrelation function. The GCTE generalizes various models for anomalous transport of photons and takes into account the possible presence of a static background. In a tutorial example, the GCTE is solved for a homogeneous semi-infinite medium in reflectance configuration through Monte Carlo simulations. The chosen anomalous photon transport model also includes the classic and the “generalized” Lambert–Beer’s law (depending on the choice of parameters). A numerical algorithm allowing generation of the related anomalous random photon steps is also given. The clear influence of anomalous transport on the field autocorrelation function is shown and discussed for the proposed specific examples by comparing the general results with the classical case (Lambert–Beer’s law).
