Imaging the optical properties of turbid media with single-pixel detection based on the Kubelka-Munk model.
AbstractWe present a diffuse optical imaging system with structured illumination and integrated detection based on the Kubelka-Munk light propagation model for the spatial characterization of scattering and absorption properties of turbid media. The proposed system is based on the application of single-pixel imaging techniques. Our strategy allows us to retrieve images of the absorption and scattering properties of a turbid media slab by using integrating spheres with photodiodes as bucket detectors. We validate our idea by imaging the absorption and scattering coefficients of a spatially heterogeneous phantom.
