Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography

CNP3132_(2).jpgOptical tools are well suited to the study of biology because the attainable spatial resolution matches so closely to the length scale of cells and sub-cellular features: the spatial scale over which many events in normal and disease-state biology are occurring. Microscopic imaging continues to play a dominant role in medicine and biology, driven by the continuous advances in terms of imaging capabilities and contrast mechanisms. This group emphasizes the development and application of new techniques for micrometer-scale structural and functional imaging of biological systems. Among the efforts of this group are the development and application of methods that optimize the optical examination of cellular and tissue biology through increased spatial resolution, higher acquisition speeds, improved penetration depths and maximized contrast. Directions of interest include super-resolution microscopy, multimodal approaches, linear and nonlinear quantitative imaging, phase-sensitive detection of optical signatures and the integration of microscopy and OCT with endoscopic applications.

Join members of the Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography Technical Group for a special student poster session at Frontiers in Optics. The session will bring together students and colleagues for an opportunity to share their research findings and exchange ideas.

Student presenters will have an opportunity to share their work beginning at 18:00 on Monday, 19 October, in the Atherton Room of the Fairmont Hotel. Refreshments will be available during the session. We hope to see you there!
