Abstract

We present a general analysis of the sensitivity of a diffuse photon density wave in a homogeneous multiple-scattering medium to the presence of a small spherical object. From our calculations in both infinite and semi-infinite geometry we derive the charge and dipole coefficients that typify the object’s most significant response.
