Abstract

We address the issues that were raised by Tycho and Jørgensen [Appl. Opt. 41, 4709 (2002)] concerning our strategy [Appl. Opt. 39, 5244 (2000)] for incorporating the wave properties of light in the description of a propagating focused excitation beam in a highly scattering medium. We explain that the strategy is consistent with the Huygens-Fresnel principle and does not violate the energy conservation principle.
