    16. Feature Of The Week 6/20/10: Fourier Domain Pump-Probe Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      Feature Of The Week 6/20/10: Fourier Domain Pump-Probe Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

      Feature Of The Week 6/20/10: Researchers from the Laboratory for Optical and Molecular Imaging at Texas A&M; University have recently published on a fusing Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging with pump-probe spectroscopy. Shown here is a summary of some of their recent work. Contrast in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is primarily derived from local variations in the scattering coefficient, which does not vary widely among different molecular species. As a consequence, the ability to resolve specific molecular species with OCT is very limited. However, the extraction of molecular information is highly desirable because it could provide valuable ...

      Feature Of The Week 6/13/10: Gabor Domain Optical Coherence Microscopy: Assessment of a Liquid Lens Enabled In Vivo Optical Coherence Microscope
      Feature Of The Week 6/13/10: Optical coherence tomography has reached unprecedented axial resolution with the development of broader and broader band sources. The promise to also reach micron level lateral resolution in OCT emerged in the mid 90s with the development of related technology Optical Coherence Microscopy (OCM). The basic concept to increasing lateral resolution is the increase in the numerical aperture (NA) of the imaging optics as resolution varies linearly with NA. The drawback to simply imaging with higher numerical aperture optics however is that the depth of focus over which the targeted lateral resolution will be ...

      Feature Of The Week 5/30/10: Real-time 4D signal processing and visualization for Fourier-domain OCT system
      Feature Of The Week 5/30/10: The acquisition line (A-scan) speed of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) has been improving rapidly to >100,000 line/s level in the last few years. However, a similar level of effort has not been embarked on improving the data processing and visualization at the same level of acquisition speed. Therefore, current real-time video-rate display is generally limited to 2D (B-scan) images. The most common way of dealing with a huge volumetric data (C-scan) is to “capture and save” and then perform post-processing at a later time. The post-processing of 3D data usually ...

      Feature Of The Week 5/23/10: 140 kHz Optical Coherence Tomography by 2 Degree Of Freedom MEMS Scanner Based Swept Source
      Feature Of The Week 5/23/10: Swept source detection optical coherence tomography (OCT) is becoming ever more popular as a chosen approach for clinical applications. This has to do with many factors including speed, compactness, costs, signal processing advantages, and center wavelength capability. Swept source technology continues to improve at a major rate but still achieving a high-speed sweep and long coherence length is one of the most demanding requirements for the swept source. Sweep rates beyond 100 kHz are routinely needed for faster acquisition in a time-limited medical procedure, faster 3D/4D capturing, or motion artifact-free imaging, such ...
