In traditional imaging, the presence of scattering media at any point in the imaging chain distorts the output image. This is because the scattering medium effectively scrambles the spatial information present. Many existing techniques rely on ballistic photons which manage to exit the medium unscattered, or photons that have only been weakly scattered. However, these techniques suffer from low penetration depth, as the number of ballistic photons decreases exponentially with the thickness of the sample. We would like to investigate novel imaging techniques which harness the information carried also by scattered photons, in order to perform imaging at greater depths.
