Abstract

We constructed an automated reflectometry system for accurate measurement of coherent reflectance curves of turbid samples and analyzed the presence of coherent and diffuse reflection near the specular reflection angle. An existing method has been validated to determine the complex refractive indices of turbid samples on the basis of nonlinear regression of the coherent reflectance curves by Fresnel’s equations. The complex refractive indices of fresh porcine skin epidermis and dermis tissues and Intralipid solutions were determined at eight wavelengths: 325, 442, 532, 633, 850, 1064, 1310, and 1557nm.
