Paper Abstract

Time and space resolved measurements of diffuse backscattered light form turbid media were performed to determinate the optical coefficients of biological tissues. The reflectance maps registered on a streak camera were analyzed with two different methods based on the diffusion approximation. These fast and practical methods were initially tested on suspensions of latex spheres in water to compare the experimental results with the theoretical coefficients derived from Mie theory. Measurements were then achieved on biological tissues.
