Modal properties of 2D disordered optical structures have been numerically analyzed, in the Mid-IR region, varying the amount of scattering and the disorder level. The modal properties study has been carried out through the use of Finite Element Method, highlighting the localized regime transition and investigating the quality factor. The results have been interpreted in a statistical fashion, investigating light diffusion in these structures with the help of Monte Carlo Method. An alternative measure of randomness weight has been proposed to support the numerical results.
