```I would like to ask if anyone has ever considered how to make a texture for a
droplet of dirty water.

If we consider for a moment a glass or a water, then it will have a refractive
index, also the medium will have an ability to adsorb light. The adsorption of
light can be expressed with ease in real life using the equation

Log (I / I0) = A = El

Where I is the intensity of light leaving the object on a given path, Io was the
light which would be leaving the object on that path if no adsroption was to
occur. While E is a constant while l is the length of the path through the
object.

I would like to also have water which is cloudy and to assume that a photon of
light for each unit of distance it travels forwards in the medium has a
probaility that it changes direction randomly. I think that this would allow me
to simulate milky water.

Finally I would like the option of being able to make the water flouresent, I
reason that if a photon of light passes through a given distance in the medium
then it should have a given probability of both changing colour and direction.

That will be pure simulation.   You can probably write a function to vary the
emission value of the texture based upon the amount of incoming light.

POV-Ray doesn't handle light as wavelengths.

I guess it should be possible to assign a light group to the media
container.

Alternatively you could make sure that the incoming light has a non-zero
brightness for all three colour channels, and crank up the scattering
media colour to unrealistically bright values.

That's how POV-Ray's "media" feature works, and if the average number of
scattering/absorption events per photon is significantly smaller than 1
(i.e. cases where you can still see through the fluid) it gives pretty
good results.

If the medium is supposed to be uniform and absorption is dominant,
there's also a faster mechanismus, referred to as distance-based
the context of interior; the same keywords also occur in the context of
light sources, but that's something different).

For materials where the expected number of scattering/absorption events
per photon is significantly higher than 1 (i.e. cases where you cannot
see through the fluid), the subsurface light transport feature probably
gives the most realistic results.

So, as often happens, we've dived into the middle of things, somewhere between
what you want done and what you've tried in an effort to accomplish that goal.

I would say, from past experience, that the best thing to do at this juncture is
for you to as completely and as accurately as possible describe the final,
finished, end product.

Then list off a variety of thing you think might get you there, including, but
not limited to, what you're doing now and what you're asking about.

Are you looking for an x-ray-ish effect, or are you looking to scientifically,
accurately, replicate in POV-Ray the process by which an emulsion-film

I'd say that maybe a very quick and easy way to get the effect is with an
orthographic camera, a parallel light source, a matte finish, and a y-gradient
from 0 to 1 with some transmit in the pigment.  Then apply a little bit of focal
blurring.

If that's satisfying, you may want to add a smoky-glass or polypropylene film
sheet as an overlay or backdrop or encasing thin sheet to give the "film" look.

Something like :
incoming light : rgb<0.01, 0.01, 1> //blue light
and, the media : scattering with rgb<300, 300, 0.01>
That media will glow yellow :)
