Abstract

We experimentally study coherent backscattering of light for a water suspension of lithium niobate microcrystalline particles. Light-controllable weak localization of photons in a suspension is demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. The effect is attributed to the reorientation of microcrystalline particles in the field of a linearly polarized pump beam. Thus the isotropic suspension becomes partially anisotropic.
