Abstract
Relationships between decorrelation and depolarization of coherent light scattered by disordered media are examined by using the conception of the photon paths distribution functions. Analysis of behavior of the autocorrelation functions of the scattered field fluctuations and their polarization properties allows us to introduce generalized parameter of scattering media such as specific correlation time. Determination of specific correlation time has been carried out for phantom scattering media (water suspensions of polystyrene spheres). Results of statistical, correlation and polarization analysis of static and dynamic speckle patterns carried out in the experiments with human sclera with artificially controlled optical transmittance are presented. Some possibilities of applications of such polarization- correlation technique for monitoring and visualization of non- single scattering tissue structures are discussed.
