    2. Apparatus for optical frequency domain tomography with adjusting system

      Apparatus for optical frequency domain tomography with adjusting system

      In an apparatus for imaging of objects by applying optical frequency domain tomography and provided with an adjusting system for setting a relative position of photosensitive elements (174) and a spectrum image (273), the adjusting system is an automatically controlled device causing a relative displacement of at least one photosensitive element (174) of the detection device (173) of the spectrum and the spectrum image (273) between each other. The adjusting system comprises at least one actuator (14, 16) acting on the dispersion device (171) and/or the set of optical elements (172) and/or the detection device (173) and movement ...

    3. Depth-Resolved Multilayer Pigment Identification in Paintings: Combined Use of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      Depth-Resolved Multilayer Pigment Identification in Paintings: Combined Use of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      A detailed feasibility study on the combined use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy with optical coherence tomography (LIBS/OCT), aiming at a realistic depth-resolved elemental analysis of multilayer stratigraphies in paintings, is presented. Merging a high spectral resolution LIBS system with a high spatial resolution spectral OCT instrument significantly enhances the quality and accuracy of stratigraphic analysis. First, OCT mapping is employed prior to LIBS analysis in order to assist the selection of specific areas of interest on the painting surface to be examined in detail. Then, intertwined with LIBS, the OCT instrument is used as a precise profilometer for the ...

    5. Feature Of The Week 11/25/12: Nicolaus Copernicus University Presents Work on Four-Dimensional OCT Imaging Using Graphics Processing Units

      Feature Of The Week 11/25/12: Nicolaus Copernicus University Presents Work on Four-Dimensional OCT Imaging Using Graphics Processing Units

      Nicolaus Copernicus University present the application of graphics processing unit (GPU) programming for real-time three-dimensional (3-D) Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FdOCT) imaging with implementation of flow visualization algorithms. One of the limitations of FdOCT is data processing time, which is generally longer than data acquisition time. Utilizing additional algorithms, such as Doppler analysis, further increases computation time. The general purpose computing on GPU (GPGPU) has been used successfully for structural OCT imaging, but real-time 3-D imaging of flows has so far not been presented. NCU has developed software for structural and Doppler OCT processing capable of visualization of two-dimensional ...

    8. Method And Apparatus For Optical Coherence Tomography

      Method And Apparatus For Optical Coherence Tomography
      The invention relates to optical coherence tomography (OCT), more specifically to spectral optical coherence tomography (SOCT). The invention deals with problem of artefacts occurring in certain scan positions due to sharp increases of reflection by the object under investigation. It solves this problem by using an extra intensity sensor located at an output for non-dispersed light of the dispersive element used for spectral analysis, e. g. in the zero order of a diffraction grating, and using the signal of this sensor for the modification of the interferometric data.

    10. Real-time imaging for Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography with massively parallel data processing

      Real-time imaging for Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography with massively parallel data processing
      In this paper the application of massively parallel processing of Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography (SOCT) data with the aid of a low-cost Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) is presented. The reported system may be used for real-time imaging of high resolution 2D tomograms or for presenting volume data. The overall imaging speed is over 100 frames/second for 2D tomograms built of 1024 A-scans and 9 frames/second for 3D volume images containing 100 slices of 100 A-scans. This includes t he acquisition of 2048 pixels from a CCD camera per A-scan, data transfer to the processor, all necessary processing and ...
