Absorption straightens the drunken stagger of light

(Phys.org) —In a study partly funded by the FOM Foundation, physicists from the University of Twente and Yale University have discovered that light travelling through an opaque material follows a straighter path, if the material partially absorbs the light. This insight could be used to improve medical imaging within biological tissue. The researchers published their study on 1 July 2014 in the printed version of Physical Review B.
