    2. Quantification of plant morphology and leaf thickness with optical coherence tomography

      Quantification of plant morphology and leaf thickness with optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can be a valuable imaging tool for in vivo and label-free digital plant phenotyping. However, for imaging leaves, air-filled cavities limit the penetration depth and reduce the image quality. Moreover, up to now quantification of leaf morphology with OCT has been done in one-dimensional or two-dimensional images only, and has often been limited to relative measurements. In this paper, we demonstrate a significant increase in OCT ...

    3. Multi-scale optical coherence tomography imaging and visualization of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring

      Multi-scale optical coherence tomography imaging and visualization of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring
      We demonstrate multi-scale multi-parameter optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and visualization of Johannes Vermeers painting Girl with a Pearl Earring . Through automated acquisition, OCT image segmentation, and 3D volume stitching we realize OCT imaging at the scale of an entire painting. This makes it possible to image, with micrometer axial and lateral resolution, an entire painting over more than 5 orders of length scale. From the multi-scale OCT data we ...

    5. Self-aligned micro-optic integrated photonic platform

      Self-aligned micro-optic integrated photonic platform
      In this work, we present the fabrication technology of a monolithically integrated photonic platform combining key components for optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, thereby including a photonic interferometer, a collimating lens, and a 45 reflecting mirror that directs the light from the interferometer to the collimator. The proposed integration process simplifies the fabrication of an interferometric system and inherently overcomes the complexity of costly alignment procedures while complying with the ...

    6. Motorized capsule for shadow-free OCT imaging and synchronous beam control

      Motorized capsule for shadow-free OCT imaging and synchronous beam control
      We demonstrate a tethered motorized capsule for unobstructed optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the esophagus. By using a distal reflector design, we avoided the common shadow artifact induced by the motor wires. A synchronous driving technique features three types of beam-scanning modes of the capsule, i.e., circumferential beam scanning, localized beam scanning, and accurate beam positioning. We characterized these three modes and carried out ex vivo imaging experiments ...

    7. Determination of mechanical properties of biofilms by modeling the deformation measured using optical coherence tomography

      Determination of mechanical properties of biofilms by modeling the deformation measured using optical coherence tomography
      The advantage of using non-invasive imaging such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) to asses material properties from deformed biofilm geometries can be compromised by the assumptions made on fluid forces acting on the biofilm. This study developed a method for the determination of elastic properties of biofilms by modelling the biofilm deformation recorded by OCT imaging with poroelastic fluid-structure interaction computations. Two-dimensional biofilm geometries were extracted from OCT scans of ...

    8. Effect of biofilm structural deformation on hydraulic resistance during ultrafiltration: A numerical and experimental study

      Effect of biofilm structural deformation on hydraulic resistance during ultrafiltration: A numerical and experimental study
      Biofilm formation in membrane systems negatively impacts the filtration system performances. This study evaluated how biofilm compression driven by permeate flow increases the hydraulic resistance and leads to reduction in permeate flux. We analysed the effect of biofilm compression on hydraulic resistance and permeate flux through computational models supported by experimental data. Biofilms with homogeneous surface structure were subjected to step-wise changes in flux and transmembrane pressure during compression and ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography within a single microsystem

      Optical Coherence Tomography within a single microsystem
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems have huge potential for application beyond the traditional ophthalmology as general-purpose medical instrument for optical biopsy. The widening of the range of applications is expected to significantly increase production volume and, consequently, puts pressure on unit cost. This trend calls for a flexible and miniaturized system fabricated in a batch process. In this paper the different OCT configurations are compared for suitability in such an ...

    10. Optical coherence computed tomography for quantitative 3D imaging of adult zebrafish

      Optical coherence computed tomography for quantitative 3D imaging of adult zebrafish
      Optical imaging in turbid media like biological tissue is limited by light scattering. We present optical coherence computed tomography (OCCT) as a novel optical imaging modality for ballistic 3D optical imaging of turbid media. In OCCT, coherence and confocal gated measurements from multiple lateral positions and angles are used to reconstruct quantitative 3D images of the optical attenuation and refractive index with tomographic reconstruction algorithms. OCCT allows for high resolution ...

    11. Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Signal Analysis and Numerical Modeling

      Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Signal Analysis and Numerical Modeling
      In this work the theory of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) signal after sampling, in dispersive media, with noise, and for a turbid medium is presented. The analytical theory is demonstrated with a one-dimensional numerical OCT model for (single) reflectors, dispersive media, and turbid media. For dispersive media the deterioration of the OCT axial resolution is quantified analytically and numerically. The OCT signal to noise ratio (SNR) is analyzed in ...

    12. Feature Of The Week 09/10/2017: Thermo-elastic Optical Coherence Tomography

      Feature Of The Week 09/10/2017: Thermo-elastic  Optical Coherence Tomography
      The conventional OCT image contrast is derived from elastic scattering, and shows the internal structure of the sample. The determination of the tissue type in OCT images usually depends on the interpretation by the image reader. More accurate tissue type contrast may be achieved by new OCT-based imaging modalities, with sensitivity to other physical parameters than scattering alone. Phase-sensitive OCT can detect tissue motion on nanometer-to- micrometer length scales using ...

    13. Thermo-elastic optical coherence tomography

      Thermo-elastic optical coherence tomography
      The absorption of nanosecond laser pulses induces rapid thermo-elastic deformation in tissue. A sub-micrometer scale displacement occurs within a few microseconds after the pulse arrival. In this Letter, we investigate the laser-induced thermo-elastic deformation using a 1.5 MHz phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. A displacement image can be reconstructed, which enables a new modality of phase-sensitive OCT, called thermo-elastic OCT. An analysis of the results shows that the ...

    14. Joint Segmentation of Retinal Layers and Focal Lesions in 3-D OCT Data of Topologically Disrupted Retinas

      Joint Segmentation of Retinal Layers and Focal Lesions in 3-D OCT Data of Topologically Disrupted Retinas
      Accurate quantification of retinal structures in 3-D optical coherence tomography data of eyes with pathologies provides clinically relevant information. We present an approach to jointly segment retinal layers and lesions in eyes with topology-disrupting retinal diseases by a loosely coupled level set framework. In the new approach, lesions are modeled as an additional space-variant layer delineated by auxiliary interfaces. Furthermore, the segmentation of interfaces is steered by local differences in ...

      Optimization-based adaptive optics for optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a technique for non-invasive imaging based on low coherence interferometry. Its main application is found in ophthalmology, where it is used for 3D in vivo imaging of the cornea and the retina. OCT has evolved over the past decade as one of the most important ancillary tests in ophthalmic practice, providing great diagnostic value for disease screening and monitoring. In retinal OCT imaging, the lateral ...
