Paper Abstract

A detailed knowledge of optical properties of tissue is important for the development of non-invasive monitoring systems for clinical practice. However, tissue optical properties are rarely known in the mid-infrared wavelength range. Goniometry offers an opportunity to determine in particular the scattering properties of tissue. Here, a custom-built setup is presented for goniometric measurements in the mid-infrared based on quantum cascade lasers.
