Time-resolved diffusion Theory:

Examples

The following figures illustrate the time-resolved transport of light from an impulse isotropic point source of energy within a homogeneous unbounded medium with absorption and scattering properties.

The time-resolved fluence rate F(r,t) is plotted versus r at three timepoints: t = 5, 100, and 1000 ps.

medium: µa = 1.0 cm-1, µs(1 - g) = 10.0 cm-1, nt = 1.33
impulse energy: Uo = 1 J
