    2. Correlative infrared optical coherence tomography and hyperspectral chemical imaging

      Correlative infrared optical coherence tomography and hyperspectral chemical imaging
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution three-dimensional imaging technique that enables nondestructive measurements of surface and subsurface microstructures. Recent developments of OCT operating in the mid-infrared (MIR) range (around 4 m) lifted fundamental scattering limitations and initiated applied material research in formerly inaccessible fields. The MIR spectral region, however, is also of great interest for spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging, which allow highly selective and sensitive chemical studies of materials ...

    3. Absolute depth LIBS-stratigraphy with NoScSiSp-OCT

      Absolute depth LIBS-stratigraphy with NoScSiSp-OCT
      LIBS is a proven method for elemental analysis. It needs little to no sample preparation and relies solely on optical access to the sample. LIBS has therefore been handled as a promising analytical method for layered or structured samples with the potential to replace metallurgic cross-sections followed by SEM/EDX raster screenings. Due to the strong dependency of the ablation process on changing crater geometries, laser fluence, and plasma dynamics ...

    4. Dual-band infrared optical coherence tomography using a single supercontinuum source

      Dual-band infrared optical coherence tomography using a single supercontinuum source
      Recent developments and commercial availability of low-noise and bright infrared (IR) supercontinuum sources initiated intensive applied research in the last few years. Covering a significant part of near- and mid-infrared spectral ranges, supercontinuum radiation opened up unique possibilities and alternatives for the well-established imaging technique of optical coherence tomography (OCT). In this contribution, we demonstrate the development, performance, and maturity of a cost-efficient dual-band Fourier-domain IR OCT system (2 m ...

    5. Feature Of The Week 04/28/2019: Real-Time High-Resolution Mid-Infrared OCT

      Feature Of The Week 04/28/2019: Real-Time High-ResolutionMid-Infrared OCT
      The potential for improving the penetration depth of optical coherence tomography systems by using light sources with longer wavelengths has been known since the inception of the technique in the early 1990s. Nevertheless, the development of mid-infrared optical coherence tomography has long been challenged by the maturity and fidelity of optical components in this spectral region, resulting in slow acquisition, low sensitivity, and poor axial resolution. In this work, a ...

    6. Mid-infrared Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography with a pyroelectric linear array

      Mid-infrared Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography with a pyroelectric linear array
      Optical technology in the mid-infrared wavelength range is currently a rapidly developing field initiated by the availability of novel high-power and spatially coherent sources. Non-destructive testing techniques based on these sources are very promising for industrial and medical applications. However, there are still many engineering problems due to the technical challenges and high prices of the optical elements suitable for the mid-infrared region. In this paper, we report the development ...

      Real‐time High‐Resolution Mid‐infrared Optical Coherence Tomography
      The potential for improving the penetration depth of optical coherence tomography systems by using increasingly longer wavelength light sources has been known since the inception of the technique in the early 1990s. Nevertheless, the development of mid‐infrared optical coherence tomography has long been challenged by the maturity and fidelity of optical components in this spectral region, resulting in slow acquisition, low sensitivity, and poor axial resolution.

    8. Multimodal non-contact photoacoustic imaging and optical coherence tomography using all optical detection

      Multimodal non-contact photoacoustic imaging and optical coherence tomography using all optical detection
      We present a multimodal optical setup, allowing non-contact photoacoustic imaging (PAI) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Optical coherence tomography is sensitive to changes in the specimens refractive index, thereby offering complementary information to photoacoustic signals which are induced by light absorption. A multimodal setup, allowing OCT and photoacoustic measurements, should ideally not rely on any physical contact to a specimen and, thus, commonly used transducers for photoacoustic signal detection which ...

    9. Multimodal system for non-contact photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography, and mid-infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy

      Multimodal system for non-contact photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography, and mid-infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy
      We present a multimodal optical setup, allowing non-contact photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and non-contact mid-infrared photoacoustic spectroscopy. Photoacoustic signals are generated using a Nd:YAG laser and a tunable quantum cascade laser for photoacoustic imaging and spectroscopy, respectively. Photoacoustic signals are acquired by measuring the surface displacement of a specimen using a fiber-optic Mach-Zehnder interferometer. In the same fiber-optic network a spectral-domain OCT system is realized. Light from ...

    10. Characterising kiwifruit (Actinidia sp.) near skin cellular structures using optical coherence tomography

      Characterising kiwifruit (Actinidia sp.) near skin cellular structures using optical coherence tomography
      Pre-harvest growing conditions during the development of fruit have impacts on fruit quality at the time of harvest and during storage. These impacts may result in differences in the skin properties of the fruit and some sub-surface cellular structural changes, which have potential effects on postharvest fruit quality and storability. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-destructive imaging method that enables acquisition of three-dimensional (3D) images of sub-surface structures of ...

    11. In-Line Monitoring of a Pharmaceutical Pan Coating Process by Optical Coherence Tomography

      In-Line Monitoring of a Pharmaceutical Pan Coating Process by Optical Coherence Tomography
      This work demonstrates a new in-line measurement technique for monitoring the coating growth of randomly moving tablets in a pan coating process. In-line quality control is performed by an optical coherence tomography (OCT) sensor allowing nondestructive and contact-free acquisition of cross-section images of film coatings in real time. The coating thickness can be determined directly from these OCT images and no chemometric calibration models are required for quantification. Coating thickness ...

    12. Multimodal noncontact photoacoustic and optical coherence tomography imaging using wavelength-division multiplexing

      Multimodal noncontact photoacoustic and optical coherence tomography imaging using wavelength-division multiplexing
      We present multimodal noncontact photoacoustic (PA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. PA signals are acquired remotely on the surface of a specimen with a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The interferometer is realized in a fiber-optic network using a fiber laser at 1550 nm as the source. In the same fiber-optic network, a spectral-domain OCT system is implemented. The OCT system utilizes a supercontinuum light source at 1310 nm and a spectrometer ...
