Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Mid-infrared light interactions with porcine skin are quantified using a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer and a Quantum Cascade Laser. Transmission is achieved in 600 μm thick samples. The absorption coefficient is estimated at 5.6 mm-1.
