Paper Abstract

We present experimental results of reflectance of immersed human skin. These results are used to analyze in vivo measurements on the human skin. In this paper, we will demonstrate near-infrared transmission and reflection measurements. The preliminary results of in vivo measurements of the reflectance at 830 nm of the human skin immersed by various lotions are described. A liquid suspension and lotions was used to study the effects of multiple scattering on the near-infrared (830 nm) spectrum. We explain these observations in the context of photon-diffusion theory.
