Efficient Time-Dependent Monte Carlo Simulations of Stimulated Raman Scattering in a Turbid Medium Academic Article uri icon


  • 2014 American Chemical Society. Monte Carlo methods have become the gold standard for investigating the properties of light transport in turbid media due to their simple conceptual picture and quantitative agreement with experiment. However, these approaches are limited to the study of linear effects. In this work, a model capable of efficiently and accurately simulating stimulated Raman scattering in a turbid environment is presented for the first time. The method is validated using both analytical calculations and experimental data. These results will allow for a deeper understanding of nonlinear light propagation in a turbid medium and will be indispensable in understanding the processes involved in random Raman lasing.
