We present the recipe and characterization for preparing liquid phantoms that are suitable for both near-infrared spectroscopy and diffuse correlation spectroscopy. The phantoms have well-defined and tunable optical and dynamic properties, and consist of a solution of water and glycerol with fat emulsion as the scattering element. The recipe takes into account the effect of bulk refractive index changes due to the addition of glycerol, which is commonly used to alter the sample viscosity.

Abstract

We present the recipe and characterization for preparing liquid phantoms that are suitable for both near-infrared spectroscopy and diffuse correlation spectroscopy. The phantoms have well-defined and tunable optical and dynamic properties, and consist of a solution of water and glycerol with fat emulsion as the scattering element. The recipe takes into account the effect of bulk refractive index changes due to the addition of glycerol, which is commonly used to alter the sample viscosity.
