    2. Fiber-based visible and near infrared optical coherence tomography (vnOCT) enables quantitative elastic light scattering spectroscopy in human retina

      Fiber-based visible and near infrared optical coherence tomography (vnOCT) enables quantitative elastic light scattering spectroscopy in human retina
      Elastic light scattering spectroscopy (ELSS) has been proven a powerful method in measuring tissue structures with exquisite nanoscale sensitivity. However, ELSS contrast in the living human retina has been relatively underexplored, primarily due to the lack of imaging tools with a large spectral bandwidth. Here, we report a simple all fiber-based setup to implement dual-channel visible and near infrared (NIR) optical coherence tomography (vnOCT) for human retinal imaging, bridging over ...

    3. Unified description of three-dimensional optical diffraction microscopy: from transmission microscopy to optical coherence tomography: tutorial

      Unified description of three-dimensional optical diffraction microscopy: from transmission microscopy to optical coherence tomography: tutorial
      In this tutorial, we present a general model linking the data provided by any optical diffraction microscope to the sample permittivity. Our analysis is applicable to essentially all microscope configurations, in transmission or reflection mode, using scanning or full-field illumination, with or without interferometric measurements. We include also a generalization of our analysis to vector fields.

    4. Measurement of shear-induced diffusion of red blood cells using dynamic light scattering-optical coherence tomography

      Measurement of shear-induced diffusion of red blood cells using dynamic light scattering-optical coherence tomography
      Dynamic Light Scattering-Optical Coherence Tomography (DLS-OCT) takes the advantages of using DLS to measure particle flow and diffusion within an OCT resolution-constrained 3D volume, enabling the simultaneous measurements of absolute RBC velocity and diffusion coefficient with high spatial resolution. In this work, we applied DLS-OCT to measure both RBC velocity and the shear-induced diffusion coefficient within penetrating venules of the somatosensory cortex of anesthetized mice. Blood flow laminar profile measurements ...

    5. In vivo broadband visible light optical coherence tomography probe enables inverse spectroscopic analysis

      In vivo broadband visible light optical coherence tomography probe enables inverse spectroscopic analysis
      We report the design and characterization of a 6 mm outer diameter pull-back circumferential scanning visible optical coherence tomography probe. The probes large visible bandwidth (500695 nm) allowed for inverse spectroscopic analysis and an axial resolution of 1.1 m 1.1m in tissue. We verify spectral imaging capabilities by measuring microsphere backscattering spectra and demonstrate in vivo spatial nanoscale characterization of tissue.

    7. Capillary red blood cell velocimetry by phase-resolved optical coherence tomography

      Capillary red blood cell velocimetry by phase-resolved optical coherence tomography
      We present a phase-resolved optical coherence tomography (OCT) method to extend Doppler OCT for the accurate measurement of the red blood cell (RBC) velocity in cerebral capillaries. OCT data were acquired with an M-mode scanning strategy (repeated A-scans) to account for the single-file passage of RBCs in a capillary, which were then high-pass filtered to remove the stationary component of the signal to ensure an accurate measurement of phase shift ...

    8. Oblique scanning laser microscopy for simultaneously volumetric structural and molecular imaging using only one raster scan

      Oblique scanning laser microscopy for simultaneously volumetric structural and molecular imaging using only one raster scan
      Multi-modal three dimensional (3D) optical imaging combining both structural sensitivity and molecular specificity is highly desirable in biomedical research. In this paper, we present a method termed oblique scanning laser microscopy (OSLM) to combine optical coherence tomography (OCT), for simultaneously volumetric structural and molecular imaging with cellular resolution in all three dimensions. Conventional 3D laser scanning fluorescence microscopy requires repeated optical sectioning to create z-stacks in depth. Here, the use ...

    9. Improving graph-based OCT segmentation for severe pathology in retinitis pigmentosa patients

      Improving graph-based OCT segmentation for severe pathology in retinitis pigmentosa patients
      Three dimensional segmentation of macular optical coherence tomography (OCT) data of subjects with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a challenging problem due to the disappearance of the photoreceptor layers, which causes algorithms developed for segmentation of healthy data to perform poorly on RP patients. In this work, we present enhancements to a previously developed graph-based OCT segmentation pipeline to enable processing of RP data. The algorithm segments eight retinal layers in ...

    10. Optical coherence tomography for non-invasive examination and conservation of cultural heritage objects

      Optical coherence tomography for non-invasive examination and conservation of cultural heritage objects
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has great potential for the examination of oil paintings, particularly for celebrated masterpieces by great artists in history. We developed an OCT system for large field of view (FOV), high definition (HD) imaging of oil paintings. To achieve large FOV, we translated the sample using a pair of high-precision linear motors and performed sequential volumetric imaging on adjacent, non-overlapping regions. Through 3D OCT imaging, the surface ...

    11. High-definition optical coherence tomography imaging for noninvasive examination of heritage works

      High-definition optical coherence tomography imaging for noninvasive examination of heritage works
      Cultural heritage works, such as ancient murals and historical paintings, are examined routinely for the purpose of conservation. Previous works have applied optical coherence tomography (OCT), which is a three-dimensional (3D) microscopic imaging modality in the field of heritage works conservation. The data acquired by OCT provides both 3D surface information of the object and structure information underneath the surface. Therefore, cross-sectional information on the object can be utilized to ...

    12. Dual-band optical coherence tomography using a single supercontinuum laser source

      Dual-band optical coherence tomography using a single supercontinuum laser source
      We developed a simultaneous visible-light (Vis) and near-infrared (NIR) dual-band optical coherence tomography (OCT) system using a single supercontinuum laser source. The goal was to benchmark our newly developed Vis-OCT against the well-developed NIR-OCT. The Vis-OCT subsystem operated at 91 nm full-width-at-half-maximum (FWHM) bandwidth centered at 566 nm; the NIR-OCT subsystem operated at 93 nm FWHM bandwidth centered at 841 nm. The axial resolutions were 1.8 and 4.4 ...
