Paper Abstract

Comparative analysis of manifestation of finite absorption in scattering media is carried out for different detection geometries. Reflectance spectra were studied for phantom scattering media containing blood and melanin as absorbers. Apparent optical density spectra of phantom media are compared with similar spectra of water solutions of the blood and melanin for same concentrations of absorbers. The influence of scattering properties on optical density spectra is discussed with use of the model of diffuse light propagation in semi-infinite media.
