Abstract
The characteristic lengths for linear and circular polarized light to depolarize have been studied by an analytical treatment of random walk of vector photons in turbid media. The depolarization lengths for linear and circular polarized light transmission through a slab are derived. A quantitative understanding of light depolarization behavior in turbid media comprised of Mie scatterers of arbitrary size and refractive index are presented.
