Optical coherence tomography
OCT uses the coherence properties of a light source to map biological tissues in three dimensions.
If the light source is sufficiently incoherent, details as small as a few cells can be resolved. It is also possible to scan up to a few millimetres in the depth of a tissue under investigation without having to cut or even touch it.
Different aspects of OCT like dispersion, polarisation and speckle
New sources and sources with unprecedented coherence length allowing for deeper imaging
Pushing the limits of OCT in terms of tissue differentiation using new contrast mechanisms
Developing the technology for optical biopsies funded by an RSNZ Marsden grant.
