Abstract

We report the direct observation of the development of long-range spatial intensity correlation and the growth of intensity fluctuations inside random media. We fabricated quasi-two-dimensional disordered photonic structures and probed light transport from a third dimension. Good agreement between experiment and theory is obtained. We were able to manipulate the long-range intensity correlation and intensity fluctuations inside the disordered waveguides by simply varying the waveguide geometry.
