      Feature Of The Week 9/19/10: Researchers from University of Central Florida and University of Rochester demonstrate Doppler Imaging with Dual-Detection Full-Range Frequency Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Feature Of The Week 9/19/10: Recent development in Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) is mostly based on phase sensitive detection so-called phase-resolved DOCT. It is commonly known that the performances of phase-resolved Doppler OCT, such as the stability and accuracy of the measured Doppler phase shift, highly rely on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Therefore, the ability to employ a maximum SNR out of a given phase-resolved DOCT system is desirable. Even though, the high speed imaging capability of FD-OCT is attractive for real time in vivo monitoring of flow activity in biological sample as well as for 3D ...

    23. 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 ...
