      Feature Of The Week 11/26/2016: Tsinghua University Demonstrates Optical Computing Technique and Achieves High Speed OCT of 10 Mega-A-Scans/Second.

      In the past few decades, OCT has been applied in a wide range of applications including clinical and material research areas. For some biomedical applications such as surgical guidance, real-time volumetric OCT (4D-OCT) imaging is in high demand. However, for high definition volumetric imaging in real time, i.e., 1000 pixels along 3 spatial dimensions and 30 volumetric imaging per second, the data flow will be 1000×1000×1000×30=30GVoxel/s. To process these massive data is a big challenge to the performance of current GPUs and CPUs. Professor Ping Xue, Postdoc Xiao Zhang and their colleagues from Tsinghua ...

      Feature Of The Week 10/16/2016: Real-time Functional Analysis of Inertial Microfluidic Devices via Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Inertial microfluidic devices have recently attracted considerable interest due to their unique capability of high-throughput filtration, separation, and sorting of particles and live cells in a continuous flow manner. However, the underlying mechanism is not fully understood yet, which is due to limited options for real-time three-dimensional (3D) tracking and analysis of particles and live cells in microfluidic channels. Although micro-particle image velocimetry using optical confocal microscopy can be used to resolve the position of microparticles in 3D, it often requires exogenous labels to provide fluorescence contrast which is not always favorable for live cell analysis. To better understand the ...
