Paper Abstract

The optical characterization of scattering media and biological samples is a very important topic due to the interest in using optical techniques as medical diagnostic tool. In this paper we reported experimental results concerning absorption and reduced scattering coefficients obtained in different scattering thick samples like latex and intralipid solutions, bovine muscle, chicken and turkey breast using a tunable time-resolved laser transmittance set-up. Our experimental data have been compared with the result of other different techniques and with the predictions of Mie theory indicating advantages and limits of time-resolved transmittance spectroscopy.
