Paper Abstract

Light which is emitted from a point source and is randomly scattered by an ensemble of particles is found to form an image of the point source. Results are presented for light which is emitted from a 25 micrometer pin hole and is then scattered by a suspension of .296 micrometer polystyrene spheres. This phenomenon is interpreted in terms of coherent multiple backscattering. The present study investigates the effects of particle density on the image resolution.
