Paper Abstract

In this paper, we described our results of computer simulations of light propagation in a multi-layer biological tissue, such as the human brain and the skin. This report includes description of optical properties of cerebral tissue and skin tissue, some technical characteristics of near-IR noninvasive techniques of the human brain and skin examination. As well as we described light beam deformation in a multi-layer tissue and general principles of our algorithms construction.
