Abstract

Experimental investigation to show the effectiveness of the extraction method of absorber information in a scattering medium by taking the output power ratio distribution is presented. In the experiment, two metallic wires sandwiched by three homogeneous scattering media are used as absorbers in transmission geometry. The output power ratio distributions can extract the influence of the absorbers to enhance the optical signal. The peak position of the output power ratio distributions agree with the results suggested by numerical simulation. From the reconstructed results of tomography in the scattering media, we have confirmed that the tomographic image of two wires can distinguish them successfully from 41×21 output power ratio distributions by using continuous-wave light.
