Abstract

Optical absorption in highly turbid media was quantified by the time shift of the electric field autocorrelation function of diffused photons. The intensity autocorrelation function was analyzed by the third-order cumulant expansion and a linear relationship between the time shift and the absorber concentration was observed. The slope of the fitted line gave the molecular extinction coefficient of the absorber. The absorption spectra were also obtained from the time shift. Applicability to dual-wavelength absorption measurement is also discussed. We demonstrate for the first time, as far as we know, the feasibility of absorbance quantification in turbid media by the photon correlation method.
