Abstract

Radiative transfer in a one-dimensional absorbing and isotropically scattering plane-parallel grey medium with a collimated short-pulse Gaussian irradiation on one of its boundaries is studied. The medium is non-emitting and the boundaries are non-reflecting and non-refracting. The Galerkin method is extended for the solution of the transient radiative transfer problem. The transient transmittance and reflectance of the medium are evaluated for various optical thicknesses, scattering albedos and pulse durations.
