Abstract
The characteristics of photoacoustic signals generated in real biological tissues are analyzed in time domain and in frequency domain through experiments. It is found that the frequency ranges of photoacoustic signals generated in fresh porcine fat, muscle, liver and kidney are about 5.0 MHz, 1.5 MHz, 2.0 MHz and 2.0 MHz respectively, and their duration is about 1-4 microsecond(s) . A positive peak is very obvious in the photoacoustic waveform of porcine liver, and a negative peak is sharp in the photoacoustic waveform of porcine fat. The main frequencies of photoacoustic signal are relatively stable, which correspond to the properties of biological tissues. The results obtained here are significant for photoacoustic tomography of biological tissue.
