In this study, the temperature change in an imitational biological tissue, when its surface is irradiated with bio-light, was measured by experiments. Using the experimental data, an equation for temperature as a function of time was developed in order to use it as a boundary condition in numerical studies for the model. The temperature profile was measured along the depth for several wavelengths and distances of the light source from the tissue. It was found that the temperature of the tissue increased with increasing wavelength and irradiation time; however, the difference in the temperatures with red light and near infrared light was not large. The numerical analysis results obtained by using the developed equation as boundary condition show good agreement with the measured temperatures.
