Monte Carlo method was implemented to simulate random photon transport inside an infinitely wide layer of highly scattering medium. Temporal distributions of intensity of light passing through the sample for different initial Gaussian pulse durations, dependences of number of scattering events, distributions of photons absorbed and scattered inside the medium are analyzed and compared to the experimental data, obtained for different parameters of the medium.
