Short-wave infrared light is weakly absorbed by human epidermal and dermal tissue. Investigation of polarization characteristics of human skin taken in vivo distinguishes how depolarization index and the Mueller matrix are markers that can identify skin from a rough Lambertian surface material. A custom Near-Infrared imaging Mueller Matrix Polarimeter using an expanded, coherent 1550nm laser beam source is used to analyze the skin on the back of hands as a subject.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
