A CCD Spectrophotometer to Quantitate the Concentration of Chromophores in Living Tissue Utilising the Absorption Peak of Water at 975 nm
Optical spectroscopy has long been used to study the oxygenation of living tissue in-vivo. It is possible to detect concentration changes of naturally occurring chromophores whose absorption spectra are affected by the presence of oxygen, such as haemoglobin and the cytochrome enzymes.
