In this work we aim to explore the possibilities of this wavelengths and compare them with imaging in shorter wavelengths. At first, we have examined its optical properties in detail, finding which band of the spectrum works best for tissue imaging. Afterwards we built an OPT setup using two lasers with wavelengths from different windows to analyze the benefits of the IIa near infrared experimentally. Finally, we discuss the results and we propose ways to exploit all the advantages that the use of these wavelengths can bring into the state-of-the-art optical imaging techniques.
