Paper Abstract

Decorrelation and depolarization properties of multiply scattering media and tissues in the case of propagation of coherent probe beams are analyzed in terms of photon path distribution. A specific correlation time determining the relationship between correlation and polarization states of scattered optical fields is introduced. Results of correlation and polarization experiments with phantom scatterers (such as water suspensions of polystyrene spheres) and tissues with controlled optical properties (such as the human sclera) are presented.
