Determining the Absorption and Scattering Coefficients of Suspended Particles: A Feasibility Study
Presented in this paper is a feasibility study of a novel method for calculating the adsorption and scattering coefficients of particles dispersed in a liquid carrier. The composite medium must be optically thin and scatter nearly isotropically. In order to determine the scattering and absorption coefficients of the particles, prior knowledge of the absorption and extinction coefficients of the carrier must be known as well as the extinction coefficient of the particles.
