    Telecom tech continues to advance OCT

    Keep your ear to the ground for an increase in the repurposing for bio applications of technologies designed for non-bio applications, including telecom and automotive. Telecom we've already seen—and are continuing to see. Optical coherence tomography ( OCT ) is a good example: This technique, which has substantially impacted ophthalmology and is emerging for many other applications, was enabled by technology developed decades ago for telecommunications. OCT generates volume images at high speed, traditionally at millimeter-to-centimeter depths with micron-scale resolution. But now, in the MIT lab of OCT pioneer Jim Fujimoto, researchers have achieved high-speed 3D OCT imaging at cubic-meter ...
