Referenceless Low-Coherence Reflectometry of Random Media under Wide-Band Spectral Selection of Scattered Probe Light

Background and Objectives: The optical probes of randomly inhomogeneous media, based on analysis of the statistical parameters of the scattered light intensity, are sensitive to optical, structural, and transport parameters of the medium. A promising approach among the low-coherence optical methods is an approach in which the medium is considered as a multi-beam interferometer with randomly distributed values of the path difference of the interfering beams (partial waves).

Mathematical Modeling of Lihgt Transfer in Low-Coherence Reflectometry of Random Media

Background and Objectives: The mathematical model of stochastic interference of spectrally selected fluorescence radiation in multiple scattering random media is considered. The expressions for the normalized second- and third-order moments of spatial intensity fluctuations of detected probe light are derived.
