Optical and spectroscopic properties of human whole blood and plasma with and without Y2O3 and Nd3+:Y2O3 nanoparticles

The optical properties of human whole blood and blood plasma with and without Y2O3 and Nd3+:Y2O3 nanoparticles are characterized in the near infrared region at 808 nm using a double integrating sphere technique. Using experimentally measured quantities of diffuse reflectance and diffuse transmittance, a computational analysis was conducted utilizing the… (More)
