Abstract

A nylon bar with different surface roughness is used as a simulation sample of biological tissue for the determination of optical properties by using the spatially resolved steady-state diffuse reflection technique. The results obtained indicate that surface roughness has some effects on the determination of the optical properties of the nylon bar. The determined reduced scattering coefficient decreases with the decrease of the surface roughness of the nylon bar and goes to a constant for the lower surface roughness, and the determined absorption coefficient increases with the decrease of the surface roughness of the nylon bar. Consequently, the optical properties of the tissues obtained by the spatially resolved steady-state diffuse reflection technique should be modified.
