With the completion of IceCube neutrino observatory in 18th December 2011, scientist will be able to operate the telescope fully in order to solve their curiosities. The study of how light travels between DOMs gives important information to help making models. Because photons can mainly be absorbed or scattered before they hit the detectors, it is essential to understand how these two factors work within the model. This paper will focus on how the variation of scattering length and absorption length change the results of photon detection, some positive results have been found from this study.
