Abstract

We derive a simple model for the angular-intensity profiles of diffuse light transmitted from a turbid colloid into a transparent medium of higher refractive index (RI) near the critical angle. Adjusting this model to experimental profiles obtained with an Abbe-type refractometer offers a sensitive and robust way of measuring the complex effective RI of highly scattering media.
