Paper Abstract

We investigate whether acousto-optic spectroscopy can be utilized for a non-invasive quantitative determination of chemical species in human blood or tissue. In a series of preliminary experiments in a model system consisting of a light absorbing structure buried in a light scattering environment we have found that it is possible to extract semi-quantitative information on the absorbance of this absorber. From these pilot experiments we conclude that our approach deserves further investigation.
