Abstract
Intensity correlations of speckle patterns formed by multiple scattered light from a powder bed are investigated experimentally. Decorrelation of the speckle patterns is measured by changing the angle and the area of laser beam illumination. The proportional relationship between the transport mean free path and the average particle diameter is obtained when the powder samples of the same type are used in the angular correlation measurements. It is also found that the particle size affects the speckle decorrelation due to the translation of the illuminating area on the powder surface. This result exhibits a contrast to a single scattering diffuse object for which the degree of speckle correlation is independent of the characteristics of the diffuser.
