    2. Optical coherence tomography in biofilm research: A comprehensive review

      Optical coherence tomography in biofilm research: A comprehensive review
      Imaging of biofilm systems is a prerequisite for a better understanding of both structure and its function. The review aims to critically discuss the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the visualization of the biofilm structure as well as its dynamic behavior. A short overview on common and well-known, established imaging techniques for biofilms such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), Raman microscopy (RM), and ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography system mass-producible on a silicon photonic chip

      Optical coherence tomography system mass-producible on a silicon photonic chip
      Miniaturized integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems have the potential to unlock a wide range of both medical and industrial applications. This applies in particular to multi-channel OCT schemes, where scalability and low cost per channel are important, to endoscopic implementations with stringent size demands, and to mechanically robust units for industrial applications. We demonstrate that fully integrated OCT systems can be realized using the state-of-the-art silicon photonic device portfolio ...

    4. Assessing the influence of biofilm surface roughness on mass transfer by combining optical coherence tomography and two-dimensional modeling

      Assessing the influence of biofilm surface roughness on mass transfer by combining optical coherence tomography and two-dimensional modeling
      Imaging and modeling are two major approaches in biofilm research to understand the physical and biochemical processes involved in biofilm development. However, they are often used separately. In this study we combined these two approaches to investigate substrate mass transfer and mass flux. Cross-sectional biofilm images were acquired by means of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for biofilms grown on carriers. A 2D biofilm model was developed incorporating OCT images as ...

    5. Investigating biofilm structure developing on carriers from lab-scale moving bed biofilm reactors based on light microscopy and optical coherence tomography

      Investigating biofilm structure developing on carriers from lab-scale moving bed biofilm reactors based on light microscopy and optical coherence tomography
      This study focused on characterizing the structure of biofilms developed on carriers used in lab-scale moving bed biofilm reactors. Both light microscopy (2D) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were employed to track the biofilm development on carriers of different geometry and under different aeration rates. Biofilm structure was further characterized with respect to average biofilm thickness, biofilm growth velocity, biomass volume, compartment filling degree, surface area, etc. The results showed ...

  2. About Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

    Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

    Karlsruhe Institute of Technology ( KIT ) is one of the largest and most prestigious research and education institutions in Germany known for its high quality of research work around the world. It was created in 2009 when the University of Karlsruhe ( Universität Karlsruhe ), founded in 1825 as public research university and also known as "Fridericiana", merged with the Karlsruhe Research Centre Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe , which was originally established as a national nuclear research centre (Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe, or KfK) in 1956.
