Frequency-domain near-infrared techniques have been widely used to detect the optical properties of biological tissues noninvasively. In this paper we propose an analytical model to evaluate the performance of frequency-domain instruments. Based on the diffusion equation and the transfer properties of optoelectronic components, we treat all parts, including the medium, as two-port networks and apply systematic methods to answer questions concerning frequency-domain instruments. Experiments show that this method can reasonably reflect the properties of the instrument within an accuracy of 7%. This kind of method can be used to design suitable instruments for various applications. We also analyze the selection of the instrument parameters to achieve optimal performance at an efficient cost using this analytical model.
