Intensity Distribution Inside an Isotropically Scattering Semi-Infinite Medium
The intensity distribution inside an absorbing-isotropically scattering, semi-infinite medium exposed to collimated radiation is expressed in terms of two universal functions, a( tau , mu ) and b( tau , mu ). For incident radiation of the form mu **m, the intensity distribution is expressed in terms of source functions and the a( tau , mu ) and b( tau , mu ) functions. Initial value differential equations for these functions are derived and solved numerically. Graphical and tabulated results are presented.
