Abstract

We demonstrate the feasibility of a novel method of determining target depth in a turbid medium through Monte Carlo simulations and experiments. The method is based on the strong and weak dependencies of the copolarized component and the degree of polarization (DOP), respectively, of the transmitted intensity on the target depth. The two-way measurements of the copolarized intensity can be used for determination of target depth, whereas the transversely scanned DOP results are used for estimating the two-dimensional image in a turbid system. The combination of these two sets of data could provide useful results for estimating three-dimensional images.
