Abstract

We report the use of short ultrasonic bursts and high-peak-power laser pulses to detect absorbing objects in thick scattering media (SMs). The detection of ultrasound-tagged photons is performed with a double-pass confocal Fabry–Perot interferometer. Photons shifted by the fundamental and harmonic frequencies of the ultrasonic bursts were observed. Absorbing objects were detected in 30- and 60-mm-thick SMs including a sample of biological tissue.
