We propose a simple and reliable solid phantom for mimicking realistic localized absorption changes within a diffusive medium. The phantom is based on a solid matrix holding a movable black inclusion embedded in a rod. Translating the rod parallel to the phantom surface, the inhomogeneity can be positioned beneath the source-detector pair (perturbed case) or far from it (unperturbed case). Examples of time-resolved transmittance measurements and time-resolved reflectance scans are shown to demonstrate the properties and the versatility of the phantom.
