    1. Microscale light management and inherent optical properties of intact corals studied with optical coherence tomography

      Microscale light management and inherent optical properties of intact corals studied with optical coherence tomography

      Coral reefs are highly productive photosynthetic systems and coral optics studies suggest that such high efficiency is due to optimized light scattering by coral tissue and skeleton. Here, we characterize the inherent optical properties, i.e. the scattering coefficient, μ s , and the anisotropy of scattering, g , of eight intact coral species using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Specifically, we describe light scattering by coral skeletons, coenoarc tissues, polyp tentacles and areas covered by fluorescent pigments (FP). Our results reveal that light scattering between coral species ranges from μ s = 3 mm −1 ( Stylophora pistillata ) to μ s = 25 mm −1 ( Echinopora lamelosa ) . For ...

    3. Feature Of The Week 03/05/2017: In Vivo Imaging of Coral Tissue and Skeleton with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Feature Of The Week 03/05/2017: In Vivo Imaging of Coral Tissue and Skeleton with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive three-dimensional imaging technique with micrometer resolution allowing microstructural characterization of tissues in vivo and in real time. We present the first application of OCT for in vivo imaging of tissue and skeleton structure of intact living corals spanning a variety of morphologies and tissue thickness. OCT visualized different coral tissue layers (e.g. endoderm vs ectoderm), special structures such as mesenterial filaments and skeletal cavities, as well as mucus release from living corals. We also developed a new approach for non-invasive imaging and quantification of chromatophores containing green fluorescent protein (GFP)-like host ...

      In vivo imaging of coral tissue and skeleton with optical coherence tomography

      Application of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for in vivo imaging of tissue and skeleton structure of intact living corals enabled the non-invasive visualization of coral tissue layers (endoderm versus ectoderm), skeletal cavities and special structures such as mesenterial filaments and mucus release from intact living corals. Coral host chromatophores containing green fluorescent protein-like pigment granules appeared hyper-reflective to near-infrared radiation allowing for excellent optical contrast in OCT and a rapid characterization of chromatophore size, distribution and abundance. In vivo tissue plasticity could be quantified by the linear contraction velocity of coral tissues upon illumination resulting in dynamic changes in the ...
