Meter-scale Optical Coherence Tomography Depth Barrier Broken

The first ever optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of cubic meter volumes have been produced, through an industry-academic collaboration. The advance could open up many new uses for OCT in industry, manufacturing and medicine. It also marks a milestone toward developing a high-speed, low-cost optical coherence tomography system on a single integrated circuit chip. James G. Fujimoto of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said: 1.5-meter Area 3D OCT Optical coherence tomography, first invented by Fujimoto’s group and collaborators in the 1990s, is currently the gold standard of care in ophthalmology and is increasingly used in cardiology and gastroenterology.
