Optical properties of human skin, subcutaneous and mucous tissues in the wavelength range from 400 to 2000 nm

The absorption and reduced scattering coefficients of human skin, subcutaneous adipose tissue and mucous in the wavelength range from 400 to 2000 nm were measured. These values have been used in modelling tissue-light interactions.
