Biophotonics Congress Biomedical Optics


Dawid Borycki participated in the Optical Society of America (OSA) Biophotonics Congress Biomedical Optics. The main aim of this visit was to give a talk entitled Correlation gating quantifies optical properties of dynamic media in transmission mode.

The short summary of this presentation is given below:

Quantifying light transport in biological tissues and turbid media is an ongoing challenge. This challenge arises from the difficulty in experimentally separating unscattered, ballistic light from forward scattered light. Correlation gating is a new approach that numerically separates light paths based on statistical dynamics of the optical field. Here we apply correlation gating with interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS) to separate and independently quantify ballistic and scattered light transmitted through thick samples.

The conference was also a good chance to learn about currently explored topics in optics, which are also related to research areas explored in prof. Wojtkowski lab. These topics include:

• application of the machine learning to improve spatial resolution of optical microscopes,

• speckle contrast optical tomography.
