SCATMECH: Polarized Light Scattering C++ Class Library (Version 3.00)

Published

Author(s)

Thomas A. Germer

Abstract

A C++ object class library has been developed to distribute bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) models for light scattering from surfaces. Emphasis has been given to those models which are physically-based and which predict the polarization properties of the scattered light. Included in the library are also a number of classes that may be useful for working with polarized light or the optics of thin films. The library is constructed to enable expansion for new models.
