Abstract

A scattering-media-characterization method that uses partially coherent radiation and polarization discrimination of multiply scattered light is described. The method is based on an analysis of the dependence of speckle contrast on the coherence length of the probe light. Polarization discrimination of detected speckles makes it possible to select scattered-light components that propagate in the probed medium at different distances. A theoretical analysis of the polarization-dependent speckle contrast as influenced by the probe-light coherence and parameters of the probed medium is presented. Experimental results obtained with various nondiffuse scattering samples are presented.
