Paper Abstract

The results of measurements of the optical parameters of the upper layers of human epidermis in UV wavelength range are presented. For making samples, the technique of skin surface strippings was used. For calculations of linear scattering and absorption coefficients, the Kubelka - Munk approximation was applied, taking into account the sample method. Use of skin surface strippings allows the transmission and diffuse reflection spectra of psoriatic epidermis.
