Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography at One-Micron

Our colleague Kazuhiro Kurokawa recently reported adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) for posterior eye imaging. This AO-OCT uses one-micrometer wavelength probe, and is the world first demonstration of high-penetration AO-OCT.
In vivo measurement of human normal subject was performed. The OCT image clearly shows the crosssections of optic nerve fiber bundles as well as the interface between the choroid and sclera.

The details are reported in Optics Express.
