Abstract

A novel method to determine the optical properties, namely, absorption coefficient, scattering coefficient, and anisotropy factor of turbid solutions, single constituent or multiconstituent, is presented. Turbid solutions of milk, ink, and a mixture of both were illuminated by a laser beam and measurements were carried out in scattered light. Experimental results were matched to the corresponding results of Monte Carlo simulation to obtain the optical properties of the turbid media.
