The Information Content Of Multiple Scattering Data: Monte Carlo And Laboratory Experiments
Monte Carlo; Multiple scattering; Suspension microstructure
A new computer simulation methodology is developed which determines the structure factor, S(q), of concentrated suspensions accurately and subsequently calculates S(q) from the wavelength dependence of the "transport mean free path", l*(λ), for the same systems. Therefore our method can test directly the validity of approximations involved in the analysis of multiple scattering data. The simulation results for l* agree closely with experimental data and explain the substantial overestimation of l* by the "photon diffusion" formula [1, 2] observed in some experiments. © Springer-Verlag 2001.
