Can a genetic algorithm solve shortest path of light (photons/waves) through different mediums (diamond, glass, water, air) to do raytracing?

If I just need a chain of cartesian coordinates (as parameters/dimensions) that photon travels one after another until it reaches to a stop (hitting a wall or something), can GA minimize its path to ...
