Abstract: Diffusors are widely used optical components having numerous applications. They are commonly used to homogenize light beams and to create particular intensity distributions. The angular scattering profile of bulk scattering diffusing materials is determined by three bulk scattering parameters which are however not commonly available. This hampers an accurate implementation of bulk diffusors in ray tracing simulations. In this paper, the bulk scattering parameters of a concentration series of milk diluted with water were determined with the inverse adding-doubling method. Using these values as input, the macroscopic angular scattering profile was simulated using ray tracing software. The simulation results were compared to experimental data and a good agreement between measured and simulated data was found. The method was also proven to be successful when applied to commercial diffusors.
