Abstract

We demonstrate a first simultaneous measurement of the real and imaginary parts of the refractive index of a highly turbid medium by observing the real-time reflectance profile of a divergent laser beam made incident on the surface of the turbid medium. We find that the reflectance data are well described by Fresnel theory that correctly includes the effect on total internal reflection of angle-dependent penetration into the turbid medium.
