14 September 2005 Interferometric Tissue Characterization: IV: Material coherence function
Author Affiliations +
We developed a new method of determining tissue density and anomaly using modified interferometric scattering experiment.1-3 The amplitude of the interferometric pattern formed by the unscattered pass-through beam and the reference beam contains information about the integrated sample density coordinate. In this paper, we introduce a new concept, complex material coherence function. It contains information about material's capacity to decrease degree of coherence of coherent beam that passes through it. This concept significantly simplifies expressions related to matter - beam interactions, described elsewhere.
