Brillouin imaging in turbid samples: the removal of multiple scattering contribution

  title={Brillouin imaging in turbid samples: the removal of multiple scattering contribution},
  author={Maurizio Mattarelli and Giulio Capponi and Alessandra Passeri and Daniele Fioretto and Silvia Caponi},
We provide a new analytic expression and an innovative experimental method to isolate the effect of multiple scattering (MS) in Brillouin investigation of highly turbid media. On the one hand, an analytic model is given to describe the spectrum in case of ill-defined exchanged wave-vector. On the other hand, a new experimental method, named Polarization Gated Brillouin Spectroscopy (PG-BS), is proposed for selecting the MS contribution through light polarization. Both experimental and analytic…

On the actual spatial resolution of Brillouin Imaging.
It is demonstrated that the mean free path of acoustic phonons plays a major role in defining the resolution of elastography maps, especially for high numerical aperture confocal setups.
Seeing cells in a new light: a renaissance of Brillouin spectroscopy
Over the years, light scattering from acoustic waves has grown to be increasingly important in the fields of biology and medicine. This type of scattering, known as Brillouin scattering, has already
Ballistic 2-D Imaging Through Scattering Walls Using an Ultrafast Optical Kerr Gate
An ultrafast optical shutter was used to image ultrasmall objects hidden behind scattering walls by a procedure that selects in time the ballistic component and rejects the scattered diffusive light.

Simple way to analyze Brillouin spectra from turbid liquids.
A one-parameter test function is introduced to define the probability distribution of scattering events occurring at a given value of the scattering vector conditions and made it possible to account for the effect of multiple scattering and to recover the values of mechanical parameters describing the pure solvents.
Laser light scattering in turbid media Part I: Experimental and simulated results for the spatial intensity distribution.
The scattering and multiple scattering of a typical laser beam (lambda = 800 nm) in the intermediate scattering regime is investigated, and an effective correction procedure to the Beer-Lambert law is proposed based on the Monte Carlo calculation of the ballistic photon contribution to the total detected light intensity.
Brillouin-Raman mapping of natural fibers with spectral moment analysis
Spectral moments calculation is investigated as a means of analysing Brillouin and Raman spectra, providing rapid access to peak intensity and frequency shift, with robust application to fast scanning measurements.
Quantitative measurements of turbid liquids via structured laser illumination planar imaging where absorption spectrophotometry fails.
A comparison between the commonly used absorption spectrophotometry and a more recent approach known as structured laser illumination planar imaging (SLIPI) is presented for the characterization of scattering and absorbing liquids, finding the SLIPI measurements to be very reliable, even for an extinction coefficient three times as high.
