Paper Abstract

A comparison between time-resolved transmittance and reflectance techniques has been performed by considering data obtained by using different experimental set-ups with streak camera and photon counting system as detectors and Ti:Sa laser and solid state diode laser as sources. Many latex and intralipid solutions have been investigated. To analyze data analytical solutions to diffusion equation have been used and particular attention to boundary conditions has been paid. The joined use of transmittance and reflectance measurement could aid in separating the contributions of the scattering coefficient from the anisotropy g-factor.
