Paper Abstract

Pre-fractal behavior of speckle intensity fluctuations induced due to coherent light scattering by multiply scattering disordered non-stationary systems is considered. Relations between parameters describing self-affinity of these fluctuations in statistical sense (such as Hurst coefficient, exponential factor or box dimension) and characteristics of asymptotic decay of effective optical paths density are discussed. Boundary and absorption effects as well as manifestation of transport length in the crossover region between multiple scattering and single scattering regimes are analyzed. Results of experiments carried out with model scattering media such as water suspensions of polystyrene spheres are presented.
