Abstract

Optical homodyne detection in the backscatter direction is achieved through a pair of collinearly located fibers in a cylindrical probe body. One fiber illuminates the scattering solution while the other fiber provides optical mixing of the backscattered optical field with a local oscillator derived from the Fresnel reflections at the glass interfaces of the sample container. Homodyne detection is possible over a broad range of particle size and sample concentration with a single probe design.
