Paper Abstract

We report on experimental results and theoretical investigation on probing the structure of turbid medium using ultra low coherence enhanced backscattering spectroscopy where the spatial coherence length of the incident line light is not greater than 25 μm. The periodic structure contained in the low coherence enhanced backscattering spectroscopy is found to decrease with the dominant scatterer size. A theoretical model is proposed to explain the observations and is verified by Monte Carlo simulations.
