Abstract : Influence of the variations of the scattering properties of a disordered medium with respect to frequency on the polarization of scattered light is investigated. We focus on the strongly scattering regime with the sum of random phasors scattering model that is extended to chromatic media and made frequency-sensitive. It is numerically shown how the scattered polarization depends on the incident polarization and the incident light bandwidth to scattering coefficients chromatic length ratio. Under the presented approach, both phenomena of depolarization and enpolarization of light appear unified.
