In medical applications, surrogate samples (also known as tissue phantoms) are often used to simulate human tissue. Optical tissue phantoms are synthetic models that mimic human tissue properties and light propagation, and interactions. They are reported to be mainly used for three primary purposes: calibrate optical devices, record baseline reference measurements, and imaging the human body.

In this experiment, we will be looking at the reflection and transmission spectra of several tissue phantoms made of different materials (silicone and 3D printed ABS plastic) and compare the results to real tissue.
