Abstract

Time-resolved polarization is used to extract coded information buried within the multiple scattering profiles from the early ballistic and snake components as they pass through turbid media. By polarization analysis the depolarized diffusive component and the natural-light background are significantly reduced to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio of a coded pulse train. This procedure has the potential to improve optical wireless communication in cloudy environments.
