Tissue Imaging and Spectroscopy (BS)

Tissue Imaging and Spectroscopy (BS)

A variety of techniques are being applied to in vivo optical imaging and spectroscopy in the case where the light is scattered many times as it passes through the sample. This group focuses on the use light to form images of tissue using diffusely scattered light or to determine tissue properties through spectroscopic measurements. Optical techniques used for both imaging and spectroscopy include reflection, absorption, fluorescence, phosphorescence, Raman, and the photo-acoustic effect. Such techniques are an essential tool for biomedical research involving small animals and hold great promise for clinical tasks such as breast cancer imaging, brain mapping, endoscopic imaging, and real-time feedback on efficacy during therapeutic procedures.

Join us in San Jose, California, from 18 – 22 October for our annual meeting, Frontiers in Optics. Several OSA Technical Groups will be hosting special events at this year's meeting, providing you with a great opportunity to connect with colleagues in your field.

The OSA Foundation, in conjunction with the National Research Council, is excited to announce the launch of The OSA Foundation Fellowship. This program is designed to provide emerging professionals with a unique, fully-funded employment opportunity at sponsoring OSA Corporate Member research/development facilities across the United States. The program is looking to pair a qualified early career professional with Thorlabs, Inc. for research in Advanced Imaging Systems. Learn more about this opportunity and submit your application by 1 October 2015.
