StructuredLaserIlluminationPlanarImaging (SLIPI) reduces multiple light scattering applying laser imaging in dense sprays. SLIPIis based on spatially modulated laser light sheets for Mie or LIF imaging. While multiply scattered light loses the modulation information, it is maintained for singly scattered light. When the stripe-like phase shifted images are combined correctly, the resulting SLIPI image shows higher image contrast and reveals inner spray structures, which are hidden when using conventional planar laser imaging.
