Broadband enhanced backscattering spectroscopy of strongly scattering media

Broadband enhanced backscattering spectroscopy of strongly scattering media
Broadband enhanced backscattering spectroscopy of strongly scattering media
We report on a new experimental method for enhanced
backscattering spectroscopy (EBS) of strongly scattering media over a
bandwidth from 530-1000 nm. The instrument consists of a supercontinuum
light source and an angle-dependent detection system using a fiber-coupled
grating spectrometer. Using a combination of two setups, the backscattered
intensity is obtained over a large angular range and using circularly polarized
light. We present broadband EBS of a TiO2 powder and of a strongly
scattering porous GaP layer. In combination with theoretical model fits, the
EBS system yields the optical transport mean free path over the available
spectral window.

Abstract

We report on a new experimental method for enhanced
backscattering spectroscopy (EBS) of strongly scattering media over a
bandwidth from 530-1000 nm. The instrument consists of a supercontinuum
light source and an angle-dependent detection system using a fiber-coupled
grating spectrometer. Using a combination of two setups, the backscattered
intensity is obtained over a large angular range and using circularly polarized
light. We present broadband EBS of a TiO2 powder and of a strongly
scattering porous GaP layer. In combination with theoretical model fits, the
EBS system yields the optical transport mean free path over the available
spectral window.
