Various techniques, including coherence gating have been employed to discriminate against scattered light when imaging objects in a diffusing medium. We demonstrate a coherence gate using a photorefractive holographic imaging system. Using ultrashort pulse illumination, depth resolved images of three dimensional objects embedded in such a scattering medium have been obtained. We have investigated the use of bulk photorefractive crystals (Rh:BaTiO3) and photorefractive multiple quantum well (MQW) devices as the hologram recording medium. Using a long integration time in bulk Rh:BaTiO3, an image of a test chart has been obtained through up to 16 mean free paths (mfp) of scattering medium. Conversely a fast response time (less than 0.4 ms) has been demonstrated in the MQW device when imaging through 8 mfp of scattering medium.
