Abstract

We present experiments that study the impact of polarization selection on the phenomenon of turbidity suppression by optical phase conjugation. Counter to intuition, we discovered that the preferential utilization of multiply scattered light field components over their sparsely scattered counterparts via appropriate polarization selection can lead to better image reconstruction quality. This effect was observed with tissue phantoms and biological tissue sections. The physical origin of this effect and its dependence on scatterer properties are discussed.
