Abstract
Determining cutaneous carotenoid plays an important role in the human health and nutrition studies. Recently, compression optical clearing (OC) was applied to detect dermal carotenoid using reflection spectroscopy. This study aims to improve compression OC to detect the absorption spectrum of beta-carotene inside the human dermal skin. We utilize a combination of experimental (including compression-immersion OC) and computational OC to enhance the ability of reflectance spectroscopy to detect the beta-carotene inside palm of hand. The presented OC techniques can be applied for determining chromophores, such as melanin and bilirubin that have good abilities for nutrition and oncology researches.
