Paper Abstract

An ultrafast optical Kerr gate (OKG) in femtosecond time scale was used to determine the scattering coefficients of intralipids, in which the BI2O3-B2O3-SiO2 oxide glass was employed as the Kerr medium. Because of the joint action of the time gate and a transient spatial gate that was induced in the Kerr materials by the gating beam, more precise scattering coefficients could be obtained. Our experimental results show that, for low turbid media, the scattering coefficients measured using the OKG method are similar to those measured using the collimated transmittance (CT) approach, while for highly turbid media, the results obtained using the OKG method are bigger than those using the CT approach.
