      Feature of The Week 12/14/14: Penetrate Deeper Using Extended Source OCT

      We have developed an extended source optical coherence tomography (SEES-OCT) technique in an attempt to improve signal strength for ophthalmic imaging. A line illumination with a visual angle of 7.9 mrad is produced by introducing a dispersive element in the infinity space of the sample arm. The maximum permissible exposure (MPE) of such an extended source is 3.1 times larger than that of a “standard” point source OCT, which corresponds to sensitivity improvement of 5 dB. The advantage of SEES-OCT in providing superior penetration depth over a point source system is demonstrated using swine eye tissues ex vivo ...

      Feature Of The Week 11/30/14: Application of OCT to Imaging Subsurface Structure of Antarctic Krill

      Many small open ocean animals, such as Antarctic krill, are an important part of marine ecosystems. To discover what will happen to animals such as krill in a changing ocean, experiments are run in aquaria where conditions can be controlled to simulate water characteristics predicted to occur in the future. The response of individual animals to changing water conditions can be hard to observe, and with current observation techniques it is very difficult to follow the progress of an individual animal through its life. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical imaging technique that allows images at high resolution to ...

      Feature Of The Week 11/23/14: Stanford University Investigates an Approach to Scalable Multiplexing for Parallel Imaging with Interleaved OCT

      We demonstrate highly parallel imaging with interleaved optical coherence tomography (iOCT) using an in-house-fabricated, air-spaced virtually-imaged phased array (VIPA). The air-spaced VIPA performs spectral encoding of the interferograms from multiple lateral points within a single sweep of the source and allows us to tune and balance several imaging parameters: number of multiplexed points, ranging depth, and sensitivity. In addition to a thorough discussion of the parameters and operating principles of the VIPA, we experimentally demonstrate the effect of different VIPA designs on the multiplexing potential of iOCT. Using a 200-kHz light source, we achieve an effective A-scan rate of 3 ...

      Feature Of The Week 11/16/14: In Vivo Analysis of Burns in a Mouse Model using Spectroscopic OCT

      Evaluation of burn severity is a significant clinical problem with over 2 million burns reported each year in the United States [1]. The magnitude of this clinical need has inspired the development of many technologies to assess burn depth, but none of these have been widely adopted as clinical judgment still relies primarily on visual inspection, with an accuracy of about 70% [2]. A recent study by researchers at Duke University used spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate burned animal tissues in vivo. Spectroscopic OCT is an extension of conventional OCT that can measure depth-resolved scattering and absorption spectra ...

      Feature Of The Week 11/9/14: Dynamics of a Short Cavity Swept Source OCT Laser

      Great advances in OCT speed and sensitivity have been possible due to the introduction of fast frequency swept laser sources. One of the most commonly used swept source devices is a short (~5 cm) cavity Fabry-Perot laser. We present both experimental characterisation and numerical modelling of such an OCT swept source and also analyse the underlying physics to better understand how such sources may be optimised. For the experimental characterisation we use a high-speed digital oscilloscope for real time analysis of the fast temporal intensity and frequency evolution. For the theoretical analysis we use a set of delay differential equations ...
