We employ the pseudospectral time-domain (PSTD) algorithm to model light propagation through a macroscopic scattering medium. We show that with specific amplitude and phase, light can propagate through scattering media and focus. We model explore the feasibility to propagate light the scattering medium with imprecise amplitude or phase. Based upon the numerical experiment, we analyze the degradation due to such imprecision.
