    2. An Elastic Second Skin

      An Elastic Second Skin
      We report the synthesis and application of an elastic, wearable crosslinked polymer layer (XPL) that mimics the properties of normal, youthful skin. XPL is made of a tunable polysiloxane-based material that can be engineered with specific elasticity, contractility, adhesion, tensile strength and occlusivity. XPL can be topically applied, rapidly curing at the skin interface without the need for heat- or light-mediated activation. In a pilot human study, we examined the ...

    3. Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Benign and Malignant Laryngeal Lesions: An In Vivo Study

      Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of Benign and Malignant Laryngeal Lesions: An In Vivo Study
      Objective. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), an imaging technology that provides cross-sectional subsurface tissue structure images using back-scattered light, is a promising noninvasive imaging modality for in vivo assessment of vocal fold layered microstructure. Polarization-sensitive OCT (PS-OCT) augments conventional OCT by detecting changes in the polarization state of reflected light. This study imaged various benign and malignant laryngeal pathologies in patients undergoing direct laryngoscopy under general anesthesia to determine whether PS-OCT ...

    4. Advice for Students Interested in Optics and Photonics from Leaders in the Optics and Photonics Community

      Advice for Students Interested in Optics and Photonics from Leaders in the Optics and Photonics Community
      SPIE asked leaders in the optics and photonics community to give some advice to students interested in the field. Astronomers, professors, CEOs, a Nobel Prize winner, and others all give their answer to the question, "What advice would you give to a student or young professional interested in optics and/or photonics?" This is a small collection of their responses

  2. About Rox Anderson

    Rox Anderson

    R. Rox Anderson, M.D., is an interdisciplinary researcher in photomedicine, the combination of the physics of light with medicine. Anderson is the director of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, and faculty at the Harvard Medical School in the department of Dermatology. His contributions include laser hair removal, photodynamic therapy (use of light-activated localized drugs for cancer and macular degeneration), and basic research into the free electron laser for the selective destruction of lipids (i.e. fats) for possible treatment of acne, cellulite, and atherosclerosis, as well as various uses of photothermolysis using pulsed dye lasers.
