Abstract

Multidiameter single fiber reflectance (MDSFR) spectroscopy is a method that allows the quantification of mu'(s) and the phase-function-dependent parameter gamma of a turbid medium by utilizing multiple fibers with different diameters. We have previously introduced the theory behind MDSFR and its limitations, and here we present an experimental validation of this method based on phantoms containing a fractal distribution of polystyrene spheres both in the absence and presence of the absorber Evans Blue.
