Laser Reflection in a Scattering Medium with a White Diffusively Reflecting Substrate
This experimental study concerns the loss of visibility of a pattern that is formed on the substrate when a planar scattering medium is subjected to a finite sized collimated light. The pattern is in the form of a bright spot surrounded by a dark circular area surrounded by a To obtain this pattern, the beam must be incident normal to the smooth front surface of the medium and to the white diffusely reflecting substrate.
