Paper Abstract

The index of refraction of hemoglobin solutions with varying oxygen saturation was predicted and measured. An increase in index of refraction with increasing saturation was found, which implies a saturation dependent scattering effect in blood, which exceeds the effect of saturation dependent absorption.
