Paper Abstract

We measured the time-dependent optical point-spread-function of light which has traversed a turbid, multiply scattering medium. We used a coherently amplified raman polarization (CARP)-gate system which had 250 femtosecond temporal and submillimeter spatial resolution. We find that resolutions better than the theoretically predicted diffusion limited value are achievable for samples longer than 90 scattering lengths when the anisotropy parameter g is greater than 0.995. Experimental results can be fit adequately with a model based on the isotropic-scattering solution to the transport equation in an infinite, turbid solid, characterized by a rescaled scattering length lr.
