Paper Abstract

We design a Time-Resolved (TR) instrumentation coupled with a reconstruction method based on Mellin-Laplace Transform (MLT) to accurately assess in depth absorption and diffusion maps of a cylindrical diffusive medium. To deal with experimental large TR dataset, MLT processing is handled without expressing the sensitivity matrix. Moreover an optimization of the TR probe geometry is performed to limit the number of measurements while keeping the sensitivity of the system. Simulations show how to optimize the probe geometry for specific inclusions depth given a background diffusing medium. These results lead to an experimental bench we use to perform experimental validations. This includes a femtosecond laser coupled with an HRI and a CCD camera.
