A scheme is derived for deducing the Legendre moments of the optical scattering function of a homogeneous, optically thick planar medium. The radiometer need only scan the backscattered light intensity over the azimuthal angle, for a fixed polar angle, at times long after irradiation of the scattering volume by a laser pulse.
