Angle-dependent partial frequency redistribution (PRD) matrices represent the physical redistribution in the process of light scattering on atoms. For the purpose of numerical simplicity, it is a common practice in astrophysical literature to use the angle-averaged versions of these matrices, in the line transfer computations. The aim of this paper is to study the combined effects of angle-dependent PRD and the quantum interference phenomena arising either between the fine structure (J) states…
