One-Micrometer Adaptive Optics for Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope

Our colleague Kazuhiro Kurokawa recently reported an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) with a one-micrometer probe beam. This AO-SLO is the world first demonstration of an adaptive-optics based high-resolution retinal imager with this wavelength band. The mosaic of cone photoreceptors and the flow of blood cells of in vivo human eyes were visualized. The details were published in Optics Express.
