What is Applied Industrial Optics?

Applied Industrial Optics (AIO) is a unique conference where industrial professionals are asked to speak about their work, which typically is never published, unless as a patent. While many industrial societies have conferences that approach this format, the Optics and Photonics industry typically only has trade shows, such as CLEO and Photonics West. For industrial participants, these events...

Salt and Pepper (Noise): Key Ingredients for Imaging Blood Flow

We’ve all experienced that “salt-and-pepper”, or white noise when our favorite television show cuts out on us. Well it turns out that similar “speckle” patterns are also seen when projecting laser light onto biological tissue, owing to interference patterns of the monochromatic light source. Now you might say, “so what!” and that’s probably what...

Where would biomedicine be without optics?

Much of the emphasis in biomedical optics research has been placed on the clinical translation of our technologies -- and rightfully so!  As my fellow blogger Dr. Ken Tichauer indicates, the potential impact in the clinic is great and the future remains bright.  But as we gear up for OSA BIOMED 2014 in Miami, I will be excited to learn about some of the latest applications in basic...

Label-free imaging: What is it good for? Absolutely most things!

Say it again! And while one of the plenary talks in the Opening General Session given by Sunny Xie (Monday, April 15th, 8:00 to 9:45am in the Ali’Ii Ballroom) titled "Label-Free Vibrational Imaging for Medicine" might be a little less funky, I am sure it will be equally as entertaining.Dr. Xie is the Mallinckrodt Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard...
