    Compact Imaging sees OCT in smartphones, tablets and wearables.

    The capabilities of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a non-contact imaging technique have become readily apparent since it first made inroads into ophthalmology clinics in the 1990s, but the inherent size and complexity of the instrumental platforms have conspired to keep it out of lower-cost or consumer-based applications. That may now be about to change, with the development of a new OCT platform christened multiple reference OCT (MR-OCT) by Compact Imaging , a California start-up with strong Irish connections. The company believes MR-OCT offers a way to bring the technique's biometric and imaging capabilities to applications where cost and form-factor ...
