  • Published 2001


A model of elastic scattering and light propagation is presented, which can be used to obtain the scattering coefficient, the index of refraction and the distribution of the collagen fibrils in a gel. The model consists of two sections. The first represents the scattering of light by small cylindrical particles, since collagen fibrils can be realistically… (More)
