Paper Abstract

Technology for human epidermis optical parameters determination is described. This technology includes: (1) epidermis upper layers glue stripping; (2) in vitro measurements of total transmission, diffuse reflection, and angular light scattering of strippings; (3) absorption and scattering coefficients reconstruction using inverse calculating technique based on 4-flux approximation of radiation transport theory or inverse Monte Carlo simulation method. Epidermis stripping autofluorescence spectra were acquired under different excitation wavelengths: dependence of sample autofluorescence on some external factors was followed.
