Paper Abstract

A method for the absolute determination of the fraction of Doppler-shifted photons in light scattered by mixture of moving and stationary scatterers is proposed. It based on the theoretical approach developed in our group to predict the signal power fluctuations of an integrated Doppler- induced speckle pattern on the photodetector. A benefit of using a multimode step-index optical fiber as a scattering sample-to-detector interface is considered. An experimental validation of the method has been performed and experimentally obtained data are in a good agreement with the theory. As one of a practical application of the method the fraction of Doppler-shifted photons in light backscattered from human skin has been measured and the results are reported.
