    2. Manifestation of aberrations in full-field optical coherence tomography

      Manifestation of aberrations in full-field optical coherence tomography
      We report on a theoretical model for image formation in full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT). Because the spatial incoherence of the illumination acts as a virtual confocal pinhole in FFOCT, its imaging performance is equivalent to a scanning time-gated coherent confocal microscope. In agreement with optical experiments enabling a precise control of aberrations, FFOCT is shown to have nearly twice the resolution of standard imaging at moderate aberration level. Beyond ...

    3. Non invasive live imaging of a novel RPE stress model with Dynamic Full-Field OCT

      Non invasive live imaging of a novel RPE stress model with Dynamic Full-Field OCT
      Retinal degenerative diseases lead to the blindness of millions of people around the world. In case of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the atrophy of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) precedes neural dystrophy. But as crucial as understanding both healthy and pathological RPE cell physiology is for those diseases, no current technique allows subcellular in vivo or in vitro live observation of this critical cell layer. To fill this gap, we propose ...

    4. Adaptive-glasses time-domain FFOCT for wide-field high-resolution retinal imaging with increased SNR

      Adaptive-glasses time-domain FFOCT for wide-field high-resolution retinal imaging with increased SNR
      The highest three-dimensional (3D) resolution possible in in vivo retinal imaging is achieved by combining optical coherence tomography (OCT) and adaptive optics. However, this combination brings important limitations, such as small field-of-view and complex, cumbersome systems, preventing so far the translation of this technology from the research lab to clinics. In this Letter, we mitigate these limitations by combining our compact time-domain full-field OCT (FFOCT) with a multi-actuator adaptive lens ...

    5. Coherence gate shaping for wide field high-resolution in vivo retinal imaging with full-field OCT

      Coherence gate shaping for wide field high-resolution in vivo retinal imaging with full-field OCT
      Allying high-resolution with a large field-of-view (FOV) is of great importance in the fields of biology and medicine, but it is particularly challenging when imaging non-flat living samples such as the human retina. Indeed, high-resolution is normally achieved with adaptive optics (AO) and scanning methods, which considerably reduce the useful FOV and increase the system complexity. An alternative technique is time-domain full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT), which has already shown ...

    6. Full-field interferential imaging systems and methods

      Full-field interferential imaging systems and methods
      A system for the full-field interferential imaging of a sample, includes an illumination path with a light source, an interferometer with at least one first objective, and a separating element for receiving incident light waves via an input face and for forming an object arm for receiving the sample and a reference arm on which a reflection device is arranged, the reflection device being used to reflect incident light waves ...

    7. Dynamic full-field optical coherence tomography: 3D live-imaging of retinal organoids

      Dynamic full-field optical coherence tomography: 3D live-imaging of retinal organoids
      Optical coherence tomography offers astounding opportunities to image the complex structure of living tissue but lacks functional information. We present dynamic full-field optical coherence tomography as a technique to noninvasively image living human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived retinal organoids. Coloured images with an endogenous contrast linked to organelle motility are generated, with submicrometre spatial resolution and millisecond temporal resolution, creating a way to identify specific cell types in living tissue ...

    8. Curved-field optical coherence tomography: large-field imaging of human corneal cells and nerves

      Curved-field optical coherence tomography: large-field imaging of human corneal cells and nerves
      Cell-resolution optical imaging methods, such as confocal microscopy and full-field optical coherence tomography, capture flat optical sections of the sample. If the sample is curved, the optical field sections through several sample layers, and the view of each layer is reduced. Here we present curved-field optical coherence tomography, capable of capturing optical sections of arbitrary curvature. We test the device on a challenging task of imaging the human cornea in ...

    9. Full-field optical coherence tomography: novel imaging technique for extemporaneous high-resolution analysis of mucosal architecture in human gut biopsies

      Full-field optical coherence tomography: novel imaging technique for extemporaneous high-resolution analysis of mucosal architecture in human gut biopsies
      Full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) is an imaging technique of biological tissue based on tissue light reflectance analysis. We evaluated the feasibility of imaging fresh digestive mucosal biopsies after a quick mounting procedure (5min) using two distinct modalities of FFOCT. In static FFOCT mode, we gained high-resolution images of general gut tissue-specific architecture, such as oesophageal papillae, gastric pits, duodenal villi and colonic crypts. In dynamic FFOCT mode, we imaged ...

    10. Full-field optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis

      Full-field optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis
      Histopathological examination of temporal artery biopsy (TAB) remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of giant cell arteritis (GCA) but is associated with essential limitations that emphasize the need for an upgraded pathological process. This study pioneered the use of full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) for rapid and automated on-site pathological diagnosis of GCA. Sixteen TABs (12 negative and 4 positive for GCA) were selected according to major histopathological criteria ...

      Optical Incoherence Tomography: a method to generate tomographic retinal cross-sections with non-interferometric imaging systems
      Optical tomographic cross-sectional images of biological samples were made possible by interferometric imaging techniques such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) [1, 2, 3]. Owing to its unprecedented view of the sample, OCT has become a gold standard, namely for human retinal imaging in the clinical environment. In this Letter, we present Optical Incoherence Tomography (OIT): a completely digital method extending the possibility to generate tomographic retinal cross-sections to non-interferometric imaging ...

    13. Light-efficient beamsplitter for Fourier-domain full-field optical coherence tomography

      Light-efficient beamsplitter for Fourier-domain full-field optical coherence tomography
      Any full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) system wastes almost 75% of light, including 50% of the OCT signal, because it uses a 50/50 beamsplitter (BS) in the standard implementation. Here, a design of a light-efficient BS is presented that loses almost no light when implemented in Fourier-domain FF-OCT. It is based on pupil engineering and a small highly asymmetric BS. The presented signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) analysis demonstrates almost four ...

    14. Compact and Mobile Full-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Sensor for Subsurface Fingerprint Imaging

      Compact and Mobile Full-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Sensor for Subsurface Fingerprint Imaging
      Conventional fingerprint sensors that are deployed in real-life applications lack the ability to peer inside a finger beyond the external surface. Subsurface information can provide complimentary biometric characteristics associated with the finger. The subsurface fingerprints can also be employed when the quality of the external/surface fingerprints is affected. One of the most promising technologies for imaging below the surface of an external fingerprint is full-field optical coherent tomography (FF-OCT ...

      Retinal Capillary Plexus Pattern and Density from Fovea to Periphery Measured in Healthy Eyes with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Optical coherence tomography angiography is evolving towards wider fields of view. As single widefield acquisitions have a lower resolution, preventing an accurate segmentation of vascular plexuses in the periphery, we examined the retinal vascularisation from the macula to the periphery in all retinal quadrants, using 33-mm volume scans, to obtain montages with sufficient image resolution up to 11mm from the foveal centre. Images were qualitatively and quantitatively analysed, using C- ...
