The distribution of path lengths taken by light as it scatters through sea ice
Entry ID: K132_1990_1993_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The spatial spreading of light introduced at a point on the surface of the ice and the temporal spreading of a brief pulse of light injected at a point was measured to clarify the details of the interaction of light with ice. The distribution of path lengths taken by light as it scatters randomly through sea ice was investigated by introducing a very short burst of light (3 x 10-9) into the ... View entire text
