Abstract

We have derived the space–time Green’s function for the diffusion equation in layered turbid media, starting from the case of a planar interface between two random scattering media. This new approach for working directly in real space permits highly efficient numerical processing, which is a decisive criterion for the feasibility of the inverse problem in biomedical optics. The results obtained by this method in the case of a two-layered medium are compared with Monte Carlo simulations.
