Multiple scattering and intensity fluctuations in optical coherent tomography of randomly inhomogeneous media

Atoms, Molecules, Optics

Abstract

An expression for signal intensity fluctuations in optical coherent tomography has been obtained for the first time in the framework of the theory of the multiple scattering of low-coherent optical radiation in a random medium. The contribution of the multiple scattering of low-coherent radiation backscattered from a randomly inhomogeneous layer, as well as the speckles of the interference component in optical coherent tomography, has been calculated.
