Looking beneath the surface: An Optical Coherence Microscope for imaging
biological tissue

Barbara Hoeling

Pomona College

Optical Coherence Microscopy is a new biomedical imaging technique that
uses the coherence properties of light to image deep into highly
scattering media. Our OCM at Harvey Mudd College has been developed for
non-invasive, 3-dimensional imaging of biological tissue down to a depth
of about 1 mm, with a resolution in the micrometer range. I will explain
the principles of optical coherence microscopy and present in vivo images
and movies of developing frog embryos taken with our new OCM.

Refreshments at 4:00 PM. Seminar begins at 4:10 PM.
Building 8 (Science Bldg.) - Room 241
