Paper Abstract

The advantages of optical spectroscopy in skin are discussed. The basis for fluorescence spectroscopy (FS) is briefly presented. The potential for in vitro and in vivo FS of biotissues is significant, but not yet well developed. Resolution of autofluorescence spectra into discrete excitation-emission bands is presented, related to various skin fluorophores.
