Abstract

In this paper we present the absorption coefficient mu(a) and the isotropic scattering coefficient mu(s)(') for 22 human skin samples measured using a double integrating sphere apparatus in the wavelength range of 1000-2200 nm. These in vitro results show that values for mua) follow 70% of the absorption coefficient of water and values for mu(s)(') range from 3 to 16 cm(-1). From the measured optical properties, it was found that a 2% Intralipid solution provides a suitable skin tissue phantom.
