Bone Transmission suddha 3/15/2004
I am looking for transmission characteristics of human bones in the 10.6-11.2 um range.

I assume you want to analyze the spectra of bones to determine chemical constituents or monitor a biological process in the bone?

Here are some links to information in that regard...

There have been many studies on the composition and structure of bone mineral. Infrared and Raman spectroscopies provide information on carbonate substitution sites and on the presence of hydrogen phosphate. Despite this, the extent of carbonate substitution at the hydroxyl sites remains unresolved. Hydroxyl groups were not detected by resolution enhanced Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy of bone nor by proton magnetic resonance, leading to the suggestion that complete replacement of the hydroxyls had occurred.

Infrared spectroscopy provides detailed chemical information on the structures of biomolecules. When performed in a time-resolved fashion, the structural intermediates in biological reactions can also be examined. When performed through a microscope, detailed chemical information on tissue and cell structure can be obtained.
