Abstract

We report the first measurement of the distribution function of the fluctuations on the total transmission of multiple scattered light. The shape of the distribution is predominantly Gaussian. A non-Gaussian contribution to the distribution function is found, caused by correlation in the cubed intensity. The scattering diagrams responsible for this new correlation are calculated without free parameters, and a good agreement is found between experiment and theory.
