The aim of this visit was to perform collaborative experiments with interferometric Near Infrared Spectroscopy (iNIRS) to quantify optical properties of turbid media. During this visit, the novel correlation gating approach was utilized to post-process the captured data in order to derive optical properties: group index, scattering and absorption coefficients, scattering anisotropy and reduced scattering coefficient.
Two-photon excitation fluorescence imaging of the back of the eye allows visualization of subcellular structures in the living animal eye. This method is helpful for investigating mechanisms of retinal diseases and development of ophthalmic therapies. However, anterior optics of the animal eye poorly transmit light at desired wavelengths.
