Abstract

Propagation of light emitted by an instantaneous source located above a plane interface between two semi-infinite turbid media is considered using the diffusion approximation. Green functions are derived for an instantaneous line source and an instantaneous point source by the method of Bellman et al. [Philos. Mag. 40, 297 (1949)], which is based on integral transforms. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional Green functions for diffuse light have been obtained in the form of single integrals that allow for fast calculation of the specific intensity in the whole space. The influence of the optical parameters of the two media (diffusion coefficients, absorptions, and refractive indices) on the shapes of the contour lines of the specific intensity is analyzed.
