    In-Situ Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the Time-Resolved Investigation of Crystallization Processes in Polymers

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a low-coherence interferometric imaging method which was developed in the 1990s prevalently in the area of biomedical diagnostics. (1) It generates depth scans of samples in a contact-free, nondestructive manner. Having become a standard method for ophthalmologic examinations, (2, 3) within the past decade also applications outside the medical field were found, as summarized in a recent review (4) and with a special focus put on polymer science: in contrast to biological tissues, polymers usually do not contain water and therefore also light in the near-infrared (NIR) region, which otherwise would be absorbed, can be ...
