Abstract

Pulse propagation is measured in a highly scattering medium and the photon mean free path is measured for different densities of scatterers. We analyze the effect of detector orientation relative to the light source, which is a probe of the anisotropy of the photon current. We compare pulse transmission in an effectively infinite geometry to pulse transmission in a backscattering experiment. We determine the boundary condition at the interface between the scattering medium and the free medium. This consists of linear combinations of absorbing and reflecting conditions.
