Optical Coherence Tomography: Designs for the Next Generation

Seminar
Wednesday, December 05, 2012
6:00 PM
Free and open to the public

In its nearly 25-year history, optical coherence tomography has gained appreciable notoriety as a technology capable of non-invasively imaging the microstructure of biological tissue. The rapid penetration of OCT into the clinical market has both been driven by and itself simulated new technological advances in the field, with the end result of a highly informative, patient-friendly diagnostic modality. Recently our own group has taken a systematic approach to re-engineering the traditional OCT system both to understand and to overcome some of the known limitations of current designs. In this talk, I provide a perspective on historical developments in the field, our recent contributions, and new application areas.
