    2. Real-time, ultrahigh-resolution, optical coherence tomography with an all-fiber, femtosecond fiber laser continuum at 1.5 μm

      Real-time, ultrahigh-resolution, optical coherence tomography with an all-fiber, femtosecond fiber laser continuum at 1.5 μm
      Real-time, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) is demonstrated in the 1.4¿1.7-μm wavelength region with a stretched-pulse, passively mode-locked, Er-doped fiber laser and highly nonlinear fiber. The fiber laser generates 100-mW, linearly chirped pulses at a 51-MHz repetition rate. The pulses are compressed and then coupled into a normally dispersive highly nonlinear fiber to generate a low-noise supercontinuum with a 180-nm FWHM bandwidth and 38 mW of output ...

    4. Digital signal processing techniques for optical coherence tomography: OCT and OCT image enhancement (Thesis)

      Digital signal processing techniques for optical coherence tomography: OCT and OCT image enhancement (Thesis)
      Digital signal processing (DSP) techniques were developed to improve the flexibility, functionality, and image quality of ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems. To reduce the dependence of OCT research systems on fixed analog electronics and to improve overall system flexibility, a digital demodulation scheme implemented entirely in software was developed. This improvement allowed rapid reconfiguration of the OCT imaging speed and source center wavelength without having to construct new ...

      High resolution imaging of neoplasma using optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Diagnostic imaging technologies for the detection of cancer include CT, MRI, ultrasonography, and endoscopy. However, many early neoplastic changes remain beyond their detection limits. A modality capable of imaging at or near the cellular level could detect disease at earlier stages than currently possible and thus improve patient prognosis. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can achieve resolutions in the cellular and subcellular range (1-15 um) and could improve the diagnostic range ...

      Surgical diagnostics, guidance, and intervention using optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Advances in biomedical imaging technology are rapidly becoming integrated into the surgical suite for image-guidance of interventional procedures. Clinical imaging modalities including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imagine, and ultrasound offer resolutions sufficient to guide placement of surgical instruments, but insufficient to resolve tissue and cellular microstructure. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new high-resolution biomedical imaging modality based on the detection of backscattered near-infrared laser light from tissue. The compact ...
