    2. In vivo three-dimensional imaging of human corneal nerves using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

      In vivo three-dimensional imaging of human corneal nerves using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography
      We have employed Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) to achieve corneal nerve imaging, which could be useful in surgical planning and refractive surgery. Because the three-dimensional (3-D) images of the corneal nerves were acquiredin vivo, unintentional movement of the subject during the measurement led to imaging artifacts. These artifacts were compensated for with a series of signal processing techniques, namely realigning A-scan images to flatten the boundary and cross-correlating adjacent ...

      Purpose To elucidate the anatomic details of gland dropout detected on two-dimensional infrared (IR) meibography in cases of dry eye associated with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) by using three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (OCT) meibography. Methods In this cross-sectional, observational case series, we enrolled gland dropout detected on IR meibography; the condition was then examined using a real-time swept-source OCT system. Accordingly, a series of 500 raster B-scan OCT images, with ...

    4. An All-Fiber-Optic Combined System of Noncontact Photoacoustic Tomography and Optical Coherence Tomography

      An All-Fiber-Optic Combined System of Noncontact Photoacoustic Tomography and Optical Coherence Tomography
      We propose an all-fiber-based dual-modal imaging system that combines noncontact photoacoustic tomography (PAT) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). The PAT remotely measures photoacoustic (PA) signals with a 1550-nm laser on the surface of a sample by utilizing a fiber interferometer as an ultrasound detector. The fiber-based OCT, employing a swept-source laser centered at 1310 nm, shares the sample arm of the PAT system. The fiber-optic probe for the combined system ...

      All optical fiber combined-imaging system of photoacoustic and optical coherence tomography
      We present an all optical fiber combined-imaging system that integrates non-contact photoacoustic tomography (NPAT) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to simultaneously provide PA and OCT images. The fiber-based PAT system utilizing a Mach-Zehnder interferometer with a fiber laser of 1550 nm measures the photoacoustic signal at the sample surface.

    7. Optical coherence tomography application by using optical phase shift based on fiber optic sensor

      Optical coherence tomography application by using optical phase shift based on fiber optic sensor
      We demonstrate fiber-optic sensor applications to full-range complex optical coherence tomography (OCT). To extend imaging range in OCT, real value or interferogram measured from an interferometer is needed to convert into complex value. For the purpose, various treatments such as mechanical, electro-optical, optical and programming based methods have been exploited in the interferometer. To make complex signal in fiber-optic interferometer, we propose vibrationbased optical phase shifting method. The proposed method ...

    8. Efficient trigger signal generation from wasted backward amplified stimulated emission at optical amplifiers for optical coherence tomography

      Efficient trigger signal generation from wasted backward amplified stimulated emission at optical amplifiers for optical coherence tomography
      This paper propose an optical structure to generate trigger signals for optical coherence tomography (OCT) using backward light which is usually disposed. The backward light is called backward amplified stimulated emission generated from semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) when using swept wavelength tunable laser (SWTL). A circulator is applied to block undesirable lights in the SWTL instead of an isolator in common SWTL. The circulator also diverts backward amplified spontaneous lights ...

    9. In vivo wide-field reflectance/fluorescence imaging and polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography of human oral cavity with a forward-viewing probe

      In vivo wide-field reflectance/fluorescence imaging and polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography of human oral cavity with a forward-viewing probe
      We report multimodal imaging of human oral cavity in vivo based on simultaneous wide-field reflectance/fluorescence imaging and polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) with a forward-viewing imaging probe. Wide-field reflectance/fluorescence imaging and PS-OCT were to provide both morphological and fluorescence information on the surface, and structural and birefringent information below the surface respectively. The forward-viewing probe was designed to access the oral cavity through the mouth with dimensions of ...

    10. Short cavity active mode locking fiber laser for optical sensing and imaging

      Short cavity active mode locking fiber laser for optical sensing and imaging
      We demonstrate a highly linear wavenumber- swept active mode locking (AML) fiber laser for optical sensing and imaging without any wavenumber-space resampling process. In this all-electric AML wavenumber-swept mechanism, a conventional wavelength selection filter is eliminated and, instead, the suitable programmed electric modulation signal is directly applied to the gain medium. Various types of wavenumber (or wavelength) tunings can be implemented because of the filter-less cavity configuration. Therefore, we successfully ...
