    Optical coherence tomography visualizes microstructure of apple peel

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged recently as a non-destructive technique to visualize subsurface structures of materials. The objective of this work was to investigate whether OCT is an appropriate method to non-destructively assess the peel structural properties of apple fruit and to compare OCT to confocal microscopy and micro-CT. Peel structural properties of apples from different cultivars (‘Braeburn’, ‘Arlet’, ‘Royal Gala’ and ‘Ida Red’) were measured. The effects of preharvest fertilization treatments and storage duration on calculated structural properties of apple peel from OCT images were investigated. It was found that OCT is a fast, high resolution and high ...
