Figure 3 The absorption coefficients and wavelength of the near-infrared device. This graph shows the absorption coefficients of melanin (brown), hemoglobin (red) and water (blue). The near-infrared (NIR) device used in our study emits a spectrum of NIR from 1100 to 1800 nm (bold red), with filtering of wavelengths between 1400 and 1500 nm (blue belt) that are strongly absorbed by water and hemoglobin.
