Abstract
Several schemes for using time-resolved spectroscopy to determine changes in optical absorbance of a composite media are discussed. Mathematical division of measured transit-time probabilities yields a difference signal whose logarithmic decay is observable over an extended time range. This signal can be used to obtain reliable estimates of the absolute value of a change in the optical absorption of a sample. In homogeneous media, a ratio of absorbances can be determined from the ratio of the mean values of the transit-time distributions. A three optode detection system may improve the accuracy of detected absorption changes when composite media are examined.
