    2. Comparing an FFT filter for multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) with an Chebychev and an elliptic filter

      Comparing an FFT filter for multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) with an Chebychev and an elliptic filter
      Portable and low-cost optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly used to improve the accuracy of point-of-care applications. The increasing research efforts to use photonics integrated circuits (PIC) is without doubts the future for highest packaging densities in miniature optical systems. MR-OCT is another technology that is using the advantages of well known CD/DVD-ROM technology to build miniaturized and low-cost OCT systems and may be more readily available before PICs ...

    3. Development of a first-generation miniature multiple reference optical coherence tomography imaging device

      Development of a first-generation miniature multiple reference optical coherence tomography imaging device
      Multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) is a technology ideally suited to low-cost, compact OCT imaging. This modality is an extension of time-domain OCT with the addition of a partial mirror in front of the reference mirror. This enables extended, simultaneous depth scanning with the relatively short scan range of a miniature voice coil motor on which the scanning mirror is mounted. This work details early stage development of the ...

    4. Enhanced in vivo visualization of the microcirculation by topical application of fructose solution confirmed with correlation mapping optical coherence tomography

      Enhanced in vivo visualization of the microcirculation by topical application of fructose solution confirmed with correlation mapping optical coherence tomography
      Changes within the microcirculation can provide an early indication of the onset of a plethora of ailments. Various techniques have thus been developed that enable the study of microcirculatory irregularities. Correlation mapping optical coherence tomography (cmOCT) is a recently proposed technique, which enables mapping of vasculature networks at the capillary level in a noninvasive and noncontact manner. This technique is an extension of conventional optical coherence tomography (OCT) and is ...

    5. The how and why of a $10 optical coherence tomography system

      The how and why of a $10 optical coherence tomography system
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the fastest growing medical imaging modality with more than $1Bln worth of scans ordered and over $400M worth of equipment shipped in 2010, just nine years after its commercialization. It is at various stages of acceptance and approvals for eye care, coronary care and skin cancer care and is spreading rapidly to other medical specialties. Indeed, it is the leading success of translation of biophotonics ...

    8. Evaluation of a polarization sensitive multiple reference optical coherence tomography system

      Evaluation of a polarization sensitive multiple reference optical coherence tomography system
      Multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) is a new compact optical sensor platform based on a small form factor recirculating reference arm scanning optical delay, which promises a robust, cost-effective semisolid state design for integration with next generation mobile devices. The miniature re-circulating optical delay is based on a voice coil motor (VCM) actuator and a partial mirror. Imaging capability of MR-OCT has been recently demonstrated using a non-polarizing bulk ...

    10. The impact of relative intensity noise on the signal in multiple reference optical coherence tomography

      The impact of relative intensity noise on the signal in multiple reference optical coherence tomography
      Multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) applies a unique low-cost solution to enhance the scanning depth of standard time domain OCT by inserting an partial mirror into the reference arm of the interferometric system. This novel approach achieves multiple reflections for different layers and depths of an sample with minimal effort of engineering and provides an excellent platform for low-cost OCT systems based on well understood production methods for micro-mechanical ...

    11. Depth-dependent displacement sensitivity analysis and the influence of Doppler angle for quantitative assessment of mechanical properties using phase-sensitive spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Depth-dependent displacement sensitivity analysis and the influence of Doppler angle for quantitative assessment of mechanical properties using phase-sensitive spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence elastography (OCE) asesses the mechanical properties of samples by applying a mechanical stimulation and detecting the resulting sample displacement using optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCE methods which utilise the phase of the OCT signal offer the potential to detect displacements on the sub-nanometre scale. However, the displacement sensitivity achieveable is directly related to the signal-to-noise ratio and phase stability of the underlying OCT system. Furthermore, the estimation of ...

    12. Assessment of curing behavior of light-activated dental composites using intensity correlation based multiple reference optical coherence tomography

      Assessment of curing behavior of light-activated dental composites using intensity correlation based multiple reference optical coherence tomography
      Background and Objectives Monitoring the curing kinetics of light-activated resin is a key area of research. These resins are used in restorative applications and particularly in dental applications. They can undergo volumetric shrinkage due to poor control of the depth dependent curing process, modulated by the intensity and duration of the curing light source. This often results in the formation of marginal gaps, causing pain and damage to the restoration ...
