Abstract

Structurally anisotropic materials are ubiquitous in several application fields, yet their accurate optical characterization remains challenging due our incomplete understanding of how anisotropic light transport properties arise from the microscopic scattering coefficients. In fact, even when the dynamics of light transport is directly measured, coarse simplifications are often introduced due to a lack of established theoretical models or numerical methods. Here, we apply a general Monte Carlo implementation capable of handling direction-dependent scattering to the analysis of light transport in a sample of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tape. Using only a set of transient transmittance intensity profiles, the analysis retrieves the tensor components of the diffusive rates and the scattering coefficients along all three directions, in excellent agreement with Monte Carlo simulations.
