Paper Abstract

Optical coherence microcopy (OCM) is a new method for optical and near-infrared imaging of biological tissues. This method is based on the detection of least-back-scattering light that maintain coherence and has thus spend shortest time that its path-length difference (Delta) L falling within the coherence length Lc of the low-coherence source. This paper points out that there are also a special part of multiple scattering light which has the sufficient small part length differences (Delta) L falling within the coherence Lc. The effects of this part of multiple scattering light can be divided into two categories. One is nonlinear effects and the other is speckle effects.
