A Tissue Model for Investigating Photon Migration in Trans-Cranial Infrared Imaging

  • Robert Lloyd Greenfeld


Single photon counting time correlation1–3 is a method to measure a sample’s properties such that the output intensity is time-correlated with the input. Knowing this enables the user to deconvolve the response in order to determine the imulse response for a sample. It is very useful in studies which measure lifetimes of sample fluorescence.
