Abstract

The autocorrelation function of the backscattered intensity in a diffusing-wave spectroscopy experiment that uses a point source is calculated by use of the diffusive-wave model. We show that in this approximation the calculated autocorrelation function decays faster than if the plane-source approximation were used. The design of a probe that implements this geometry is presented together with preliminary results that show the utility of the probe as a sizing tool in concentrated dispersions.
