Paper Abstract

We present the result of investigation of blood sediment formation with the use of three different optical techniques. The angular dependence of scattered light intensity, transmitted light intensity across the sediment's layer and correlation of speckle intensity fluctuations were measure. Two characteristic time periods of the sedimentation process are demonstrated. In the first period three phases can be distinguished: the plasma, the phase of diffuse erythrocytes and the phase of already formed aggregates. In the second period the phase of the diffuse erythrocytes disappears. The results support the hypothesis that a phase transition is associated with the blood sedimentation process.
