Abstract
We developed optical tissue phantoms with a novel combination of matrix and scatterers. These phantoms have a well known scattering microstructure of monodisperse silica microspheres, embedded in elastic silicone. We characterize their mechanical properties and, some of their optical properties. We also validate the control over the density of scatterers achieved with our proposed fabrication technique. The properties obtained are a practical combination of deformability, durability and simplicity of the microstructure. These are illustrated by results on speckle statistics in optical coherence tomography.
