Paper Abstract

Temperature measurements of tissue during laser irradiation are typically made by thermocouples or thermal cameras. However, thermocouples are invasive and can affect the accuracy of measurements, whereas thermal cameras are constrained to surface measurements. Thus, there exits a need for an accurate, non-invasive temperature measurement technique within a tissue sample. We have used an interferometric technique to generate fringes from which temperature information is extracted.
