Masters of Science in Optical Coherence Tomography at the University of Kent
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is having a dramatic impact on the diagnosis and management of eye disease, and offers a wide range of career prospects in research and industry. Come and study the principles of spectral and time domain interferometry, and learn how progress in the fibre optics and laser industry has shaped OCT technology.
In this one-year programme, students will develop an experimental project under the supervision of one of the four academics of the Applied Optics Group (AOG) which has long and extensive experience in OCT. Projects can be selected from a wide range of areas, including tissue optics, interference, diffraction, and fibre lasers (supercontinuum and swept), optoacoustics, all relevant to OCT.
Students will also be offered a 36 lecture taught module as part of the training, covering theoretical aspects of light-tissue interaction, OCT principles, scanning, wavefront sensing, adaptive optics, endoscopy and lasers. Clinical aspects will also be covered by collaborators of the AOG such as at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital (London), and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. The AOG also offers regular seminars with internal and external speakers.
The official start date for the course is the 15th September 2018. The number of places is limited. For more information, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
