Paper Abstract

The dependence of photon transport parameters (decay constants) on the scattering characteristics of media with strongly forward biased optical scattering is examined with respect to the influence of the large angle (diffuse) scattering component and the higher moments of the phase function. The latter are particularly significant for the evolution of internal radiance; the results suggest that diffusion analysis can be in serious error for the interpretation of experimental data on the scattering of light in biological tissue (the inverse problem).
