Paper Abstract

We report the construction and characterization at a wavelength of 633 nm of a polyurethane multi layered phantom with optical properties similar to a stratified model of human skin. During the construction of this phantom, integrating sphere technique was used to measure transmittance and reflectance, and using the inversion method IAD, to ensure that the optical properties of each layer corresponds to those in the design, measuring an exact replica of each one. A modified MCML code that includes the effects of lateral loss light and the spatial distribution of intensity at the entrance of the sample was used to compare the experimental transmittance and reflectance measurements of the whole phantom with the simulated ones obtained using the retrieved optical parameters in each layer.
