    2. Photonics for Forensics: new publication on peer-reviewed journal

      Photonics for Forensics: new publication on peer-reviewed journal
      A study on the applicability of optical coherence tomography imaging for questioned documents examination, particularly identification documents (national ID cards and passports) has just been published by researchers from the Applied Optics group, the Forensic Science Research group in our School, and Foster and Freeman, Ltd., a manufacturer of forensic science lab equipment. This is a unique study for the group and the wider school, where Photonics was so exquisitely ...

    3. Sub-surface characterisation of latest-generation identification documents using optical coherence tomography

      Sub-surface characterisation of latest-generation identification documents using optical coherence tomography
      The identification of individuals, particularly at international border crossings, coupled with the evolving sophistication of identity documents are issues that authorities must contend with. Particularly, the ability to distinguish legitimate from counterfeit documents, with high throughput, sensitivity, and selectivity is an ever-evolving challenge. Over the last decade, an increasing number of security features have been introduced by authorities in identification documents. The latest generation of travel documents (such as passports ...

    4. Dental Diagnosis and Treatment Assessments: Between X-rays Radiography and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Dental Diagnosis and Treatment Assessments: Between X-rays Radiography and Optical Coherence Tomography
      A correct diagnosis in dental medicine is typically provided only after clinical and radiological evaluations. They are also required for treatment assessments. The aim of this study is to establish the boundaries from which a modern, although established, imaging technique, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), is more suitable than the common X-ray radiography to assess dental issues and treatments. The most common methods for daily-basis clinical imaging are utilized in this ...

    5. Apparatus and method for processing the signal in master slave interferometry and apparatus and method for master slave optical coherence tomography with any number of sampled depths

      Apparatus and method for processing the signal in master slave interferometry and apparatus and method for master slave optical coherence tomography with any number of sampled depths
      The present invention related to an apparatus and method for master slave interferometry, referred to as Complex Master Slave (CMS). The method and apparatus can be used to provide complex-valued measurements of a signal reflected from an axial position inside an object or of signals reflected from points at several axial positions inside an object.

    6. Direct en-face, speckle-reduced images using angular-compounded Master–Slave optical coherence tomography

      Direct en-face, speckle-reduced images using angular-compounded Master–Slave optical coherence tomography
      In this paper, an angular compounding method to achieve speckle contrast reduction in optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is explored in detail. The angular compounding approach involves collecting multiple images at different angles of incidence, registering the images to correct for induced distortions, and then incoherently summing the images to reduce speckle. The method was experimentally demonstrated with a spectrometer-based MasterSlave enhanced OCT instrument capable of directly generating en-face images ...

    9. En-face optical coherence tomography/fluorescence endomicroscopy for minimally invasive imaging using a robotic scanner

      En-face optical coherence tomography/fluorescence endomicroscopy for minimally invasive imaging using a robotic scanner
      We report a compact rigid instrument capable of delivering en-face optical coherence tomography (OCT) images alongside (epi)-fluorescence endomicroscopy (FEM) images by means of a robotic scanning device. Two working imaging channels are included: one for a one-dimensional scanning, forward-viewing OCT probe and another for a fiber bundle used for the FEM system. The robotic scanning system provides the second axis of scanning for the OCT channel while allowing the ...
