The effect of temperature on the optical properties of biological tissue has been studied by using milk as an example. Optical properties of milk were measured by using optical coherence tomography(OCT) technology in the temperature range of 20-35°C, and we get the logarithm of the OCT signal, then the rules of change of optical properties with temperature were analyzed. The results show that obvious increase can be observed with increasing temperature in the increase attenuation coefficient. It is a novel method to study the effect of temperature on optical properties of biological tissue.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
