Abstract

Presently time-resolved optical spectroscopy is applied with increasing success for non-invasive medical diagnostics mainly up to 1100 nm. We extended the investigation range beyond this limit, employing a supercontinuum fiber laser source and a Single-Photon Avalanche Diode in InGaAs/InP operated in gated mode. First in-vivo measurements were performed on the forearm and the breast of two healthy volunteers, reaching up to 1360 nm.
