    Polarization-Maintaining Fiber-Based Optical Coherence Tomography on Functional Imaging in Dense Nerve (Student Thesis)

    The technology and applications of optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been developed rapidly for structural and functional investigations of biological tissues. The use of light yields outstanding resolution and simultaneous measurements from a range of targeted locations without physical contact with tissue. The objective of this thesis was to investigate the feasibility of utilizing polarization-maintaining-fiber (PMF) based OCT to image the microstructure and functional (neural activity) of pike olfactory nerve. A dual-wavelength polarization-sensitive spectral-domain OCT system has been designed and constructed in house for depth-resolved optical recordings. The olfactory nerves dissected from pike were used with or without voltage-sensitive dye ...
