Abstract

This paper solves the radiative transport equation in a slab using the diffusion approximation in one-dimension. The absorption and scattering coefficients as well as the first moment of the phase function are shown to follow directly from measurement of the diffuse transmission and the collimated transmission, and the diffuse reflection.
