The result of fitting the spectral measurement of skin is summarized in the following figures that show the absorption coefficient (μa) and reduced scattering coefficient (μs') versus wavelength.



Figure: (TOP) The final fit of the spectra. (BOTTOM) The absorption coefficients for oxy- and deoxy-blood, water, and bilirubin (porphyrin).



Figure: The scattering coefficient spectrum. (TOP) Linear plot. (BOTTOM) Semi-logarthmic plot. The scattering coefficient is composed of both Mie-scattering and Rayleigh-scattering components.
