Paper Abstract

This is a pilot study about optical properties of the yellow race skin on the base of the theory of Kubelka-Munk. The physical model of light-transfer in skin tissue is analyzed, then a formula of light-absorption ratio of human skin is derived. Not only a method of the detection of optical absorption of skin in vivo based on Virtual Instrument and spectrum technique is established, but also a detection platform is built accordingly. It is the first time to realize the in vivo determination of the absorption spectrum of human skin.
