    A single-camera Planar Doppler velocimetry system has been demonstrated, in which illumination beams at two closely-spaced optical frequencies are derived from a single Argon-ion laser. The frequency of one beam lies on ...
  • Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Osa Optical Society of America, 2011-02-03)
    Fiber imaging bundles have been investigated for use in endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems, to obviate the requirement for scanning components within the endoscope probe section. Images have been ...
  • Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (2009-02-20)
    Endoscopic OCT probes deliver light to the measurement region via a single optical fibre mounted in a probe head. The output beam is focused onto the sample, providing a single point measurement. The beam is translated, ...

    An imaging fibre bundle is incorporated into a full-field imaging OCT system, with the aim of eliminating the mechanical scanning currently required at the probe tip in endoscopic systems. Each fibre within the imaging ...
  • Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (International Society for Optical Engineering; 1999, 2005-12-31)
    To eliminate mechanical scanning in the probe head of an endoscopic OCT system, we propose the use of an imaging fibre bundle for probe beam delivery. Each fibre in the bundle addresses a Fizeau interferometer formed ...

    An imaging fibre bundle is demonstrated for spatially-multiplexed probe beam delivery in OCT, with the aim of eliminating the mechanical scanning currently required at the probe tip in endoscopic systems. Each fibre in ...
  • Sarantavgas, G. F.; Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (2008-03-05)
    An OCT system incorporating a coherent fibre imaging bundle is described. Fibres are accessed sequentially by a beam focused onto the input face of the bundle, allowing 2D or 3D images to be acquired using point detection. ...
