Jan Lipson, Robert P McNamara, Jeff Bernhardt: Reduction in scattering from a turbid medium by photo-bleaching. C8 Medisensors, Fenwick & West, May 19, 2009: US07536213 (10 worldwide citation)

A method is proposed whereby photo-bleaching is used not only to change the absorption and fluorescence of a sample but is also employed to change its scattering characteristics. When the compounds which are bleached are contained in regions wherein the real part of the index of refraction is greate ...
