Note(s): A paper submitted by the authors at the OCEANS '98 describes a variation of the spatial interferometric technique that relies upon projected spatial gratings with subsequent detection against a quasi-coherent return signal. The method is advantageous in not requiring temporal coherence between reference and signal beams and may use a continuous illumination source. Coherency of the spatial beam allows detection of the direct return, while scattered light appears as a noncoherent noise term. The theoretical foundation of the method and the initial results for turbid media were developed. This paper presents the latest ongoing research results.
