    3. Two-dimensional simulation of optical coherence tomography images

      Two-dimensional simulation of optical coherence tomography images
      An algorithm for the simulation of two-dimensional spectral domain optical coherence tomography images based on Maxwells equations is presented. A recently developed and modified time-harmonic numerical solution of Maxwells equations is used to obtain scattered far fields for many wave numbers contained in the calculated spectrum. The interferometer setup with its lenses is included rigorously with Fresnel integrals and the Debye-Wolf integral. The implemented model is validated with an existing ...

    4. Realistic simulation and experiment reveals the importance of scatterer microstructure in optical coherence tomography image formation

      Realistic simulation and experiment reveals the importance of scatterer microstructure in optical coherence tomography image formation
      Realistic simulation of image formation in optical coherence tomography, based on Maxwells equations, has recently been demonstrated for sample volumes of practical significance. Yet, there remains a limitation whereby reducing the size of cells used to construct a computational grid, thus allowing for a more realistic representation of scatterer microstructure, necessarily reduces the overall sample size that can be modelled. This is a significant problem since, as is well known ...

    5. Classification of biological micro-objects using optical coherence tomography

      Classification of biological micro-objects using optical coherence tomography
      We report on the development of a technique for differentiating between biological micro-objects using a rigorous, full-wave model of OCT image formation. We model an existing experimental prototype which uses OCT to interrogate a microfluidic chip containing the blood cells. A full-wave model is required since the technique uses light back-scattered by a scattering substrate, rather than by the cells directly. The light back-scattered by the substrate is perturbed upon ...

    7. Three-dimensional full wave model of image formation in optical coherence tomography

      Three-dimensional full wave model of image formation in optical coherence tomography
      We demonstrate, what we believe to be, the first mathematical model of image formation in optical coherence tomography, based on Maxwells equations, applicable to general three-dimensional samples. It is highly realistic and represents a significant advance on a previously developed model, which was applicable to two-dimensional samples only. The model employs an electromagnetic description of light, made possible by using the pseudospectral time-domain method for calculating the light scattered by ...

    8. Quantifying the influence of Bessel beams on image quality in optical coherence tomography

      Quantifying the influence of Bessel beams on image quality in optical coherence tomography
      Light scattered by turbid tissue is known to degrade optical coherence tomography (OCT) image contrast progressively with depth. Bessel beams have been proposed as an alternative to Gaussian beams to image deeper into turbid tissue. However, studies of turbid tissue comparing the image quality for different beam types are lacking. We present such a study, using numerically simulated beams and experimental OCT images formed by Bessel or Gaussian beams illuminating ...

    9. Full wave model of image formation in optical coherence tomography applicable to general samples

      Full wave model of image formation in optical coherence tomography applicable to general samples
      We demonstrate a highly realistic model of optical coherence tomography, based on an existing model of coherent optical microscopes, which employs a full wave description of light. A defining feature of the model is the decoupling of the key functions of an optical coherence tomography system: sample illumination, light-sample interaction and the collection of light scattered by the sample. We show how such a model can be implemented using the ...
