Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We developed a technique to estimate the reduced scattering coefficient (mus') of turbid medium by the time-resolved measurement of backscattered light, and verified its feasibility in simulation. Here, we examined the accuracy and the characteristics of the proposed technique in experiments. The estimated values agreed well with those measured by a conventional technique and with those reported by references. The effect of absorption inhomogeneity on mus' estimation was investigated. The term that represents the estimation error was successfully separated in the equation of mus' estimation. In an experimental analysis, it was confirmed that the proposed technique is less affected by the mua-inhomogeneity and more practical than conventional techniques.
