Optical properties of blood vessel wall and plaque from human cadaver material are presented for the argon laser (514.5 nm), He‐Ne laser (633 nm), and the Nd‐YAG laser (1,060 nm) wavelengths. Measurements were performed with an integrating sphere arrangement and anlayzed in terms of Kubelka‐Munk absorption and scattering coefficients.
