Paper Abstract

Experimental study and computer simulation of light propagation in turbid media with different concentration of scattering particles are described. Gel phantoms with adding of Intralipid-20 percent as a model of living tissue have been investigated. Experimental results have shown existing of transmittance and reflectance saturation in dependence on volume fraction of the scatterers. The inverse adding- doubling method and Rayleigh-Gans approximation of the Mie theory were applied to describe the light propagation. The explanation of the experimental results is presented.
