    1. Evaluation of effective noise bandwidth for broadband optical coherence tomography operation

      Key noise parameters in optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems employing splitters with a nonflat spectral response are evaluated using a supercontinuum fiber laser source with a spectrum of 450 nm-1700 nm and a time domain OCT architecture based on 1300 nm fiber splitters. The spectral behavior of the splitter leading to balanced detection is measured over a range of 300 nm. Because of spectrally different signals at the balanced detector input a residual excess photon noise term results. A rigorous treatment of this noise term [Appl. Opt.43, 4802 (2004)] introduced two new quantities that take into account the spectral ...

    2. Multidimensional en-Face OCT imaging of the retina

      Multidimensional en-Face OCT imaging of the retina
      Fast T-scanning (transverse scanning, en-face) was used to build B-scan or C-scan optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of the retina. Several unique signature patterns of en-face (coronal) are reviewed in conjunction with associated confocal images of the fundus and B-scan OCT images. ... [Opt. Express 17, 4112-4133 (2009)]

    3. Optical mapping apparatus with optimized OCT configuration

      OCT apparatus includes an interferometer, having an input beam splitter and a 50/50 output splitter. The splitting ratio of the input splitter may be optimized depending on the source power of light source and on the mismatch of the balanced receiver. The input splitter is a plate beam-splitter to minimize the stray reflected light in the interferometer and allow sequential operation of the apparatus in the OCT or in the confocal regime. The switching between the two regimes may be at will, or synchronous with the en-face scanning which results in quasi-simultaneous OCT/confocal imaging or in alternatives frames ...

    4. En-face optical coherence tomography – a novel application of non-invasive imaging to art conservation

      En-face optical coherence tomography – a novel application of non-invasive imaging to art conservation
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an optical interferometric technique developed mainly for in vivo imaging of the eye and biological tissues. In this paper, we demonstrate the potential of OCT for non-invasive examination of museum paintings. Two en-face scanning OCT systems operating at 850 nm and 1300 nm were used to produce B-scan and C-scan images at typical working distances of 2 cm. The 3D images produced by the OCT systems show not only the structure of the varnish layer but also the paint layers and underdrawings (preparatory drawings under the paint layers). The highest ever resolution and dynamic range ...

    6. Optical mapping apparatus with adjustable depth resolution and multiple functionality

      The present invention relates to a multiple channel optical mapping apparatus which can deliver one or simultaneously at least two images of different depth resolutions or sequentially, images with different depth resolutions, or a combination of these images, or a single image with adjustable depth resolution. The multiple channels could be either multiple confocal channel and one or two optical coherence tomography channel, or two optical coherence tomography channels, or two confocal channels. The channels, either OCT or confocal can operate on the same wavelength or on different wavelengths. The apparatus can display both transversal as well as longitudinal images ...
