    Analyzing Car Paint Through Optical Coherence Tomography

    Researchers at the University of Liverpool in the UK have demonstrated for the first time how the medical imaging technique optical coherence tomography (OCT) could provide the car industry with a practical way to automatically analyze the distribution and characteristics of the metallic flakes in car paint. Originally a medical imaging technique Medical professionals routinely use optical coherence tomography, invented in 1991, for applications such as diagnosing eye diseases. Meanwhile, OCT is advancing into new biomedical applications and is being explored as a tool for improving manufacturing and industrial processes. The Liverpool team reports that moving their OCT technique from ...
