Abstract

The transport mean free path of microwave radiation in a random sample is determined from measurements of transmission through a composite sample of the medium with unknown scattering characteristics and a random medium of variable thickness and known scattering parameters. The method can be applied at optical frequencies by use of a ceramic wedge as the medium of variable thickness.
