    2. Advances in characterisation, calibration and data processing speed of optical coherence tomography systems (Thesis)

      Advances in characterisation, calibration and data processing speed of optical coherence tomography systems (Thesis)
      This thesis describes advances in the characterisation, calibration and data processing of optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems. Femtosecond (fs) laser inscription was used for producing OCT-phantoms. Transparent materials are generally inert to infra-red radiations, but with fs lasers material modification occurs via non-linear processes when the highly focused light source interacts with the materials. This modification is confined to the focal volume and is highly reproducible. In order to select ...

      Feature Of The Week 9/22/13: Lehigh University Researchers Investigate Space-Division Multiplexing for High-Speed Optical Coherence Tomography
      High speed, high resolution and high sensitivity are desirable for optical coherence tomography (OCT). Here, we demonstrate a space-division multiplexing (SDM) technology that translates long coherence length of a commercially available wavelength tunable laser into high OCT imaging speed. We achieved an effective 800,000 A-scans/s imaging speed using a commercially available 100,000 Hz tunable vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) from Thorlabs Inc. A sensitivity of 94.6 ...

    5. Fabrication of high quality optical coherence tomography (OCT) calibration artefacts using femtosecond inscription

      Fabrication of high quality optical coherence tomography (OCT) calibration artefacts using femtosecond inscription
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive three-dimensional imaging system that is capable of producing high resolution in-vivo images. OCT is approved for use in clinical trials in Japan, USA and Europe. For OCT to be used effectively in a clinical diagnosis, a method of standardisation is required to assess the performance across different systems. This standardisation can be implemented using highly accurate and reproducible artefacts for calibration at both ...
