Random scattering of light, e.g., in paint, clouds, and biological
tissue, is a common process of both fundamental interest and practical
relevance. The interference of multiply scattered waves also leads to
remarkable phenomena in mesoscopic physics such as Anderson localization and
universal conductance fluctuations. In applications, optical scattering is the
main obstacle to imaging or sending information through turbid media. Recent
developments of adaptive wavefront shaping and phase recording techniques in
optics have enabled the experimental demonstrations of imaging and focusing
light through opaque samples. By shaping the incident wavefront of a laser beam,
we enhanced the total transmission through a diffusive system by more than one
order of magnitude, and modified the intensity distribution inside the highly
scattering structure dramatically. For application, we developed a chip-scale spectrometer with disordered photonic
nanostructures. A broadband enhancement of spectral resolution is achieved via multiple
scattering of light.
