Mishchenko, M.I., 1991: Polarization effects in weak localization of light: Calculation of the copolarized and depolarized backscattering enhancement factors. Phys. Rev. B, 44, 12597-12600, doi:10.1103/PhysRevB.44.12597.

Weak localization of polarized light in a medium composed of arbitrary uncorrelated particles is considered. Saxon's reciprocity relation for the single-scattering amplitude matrix is used to derive a rigorous relation between the ladder-term and cyclical-term contributions to the Stokes reflection matrix in the pure backscattering direction. By solving numerically Chandrasekhar's vector radiative-transfer equation to compute the ladder-term contribution, the copolarized and depolarized backscattering enhancement factors are calculated for Rayleigh scattering and spherical latex particles in water. The computations for latex particles show good agreement with experimental data.
