Abstract

A single procedure based on speckle statistics is proposed to identify the scattering origins of light (surface or bulk). Successful results are obtained with high-scattering samples, which offers complementary techniques for imaging or characterization in random media. The speckle statistics are shown to be correlated to partial polarization. Angle-resolved ellipsometric data confirm all conclusions.
