Paper Abstract

Investigations of the statistical properties of dynamic speckle fields formed by the diffraction of the scanning focused laser beam on the human epidermis samples have been carried out. The behavior of the second and third order moments of the speckle intensity distributions in the paraxial region of the far diffraction zone has been studied. The comparison of the statistical moments of speckle intensity for the normal and psoriatic skin epidermic strippings has been done.
