Paper Abstract

The optical properties of biological media are in general very complex and they are characterized by local inhomogeneties in the light velocity and absorption. The local variations in the optical ve- locity are due to differences in the optical polarizability between the cells and their surroundings as well as between the various parts of each individual cell.
