|Title:||Nasopharyngeal cancer diagnosis with optical coherence tomography||Authors:||Ng, Beng Koon.

The first OCT system is designed around a 1300 nm broadband superluminescence diode (SLD) source using the time-domain method. An axial resolution of 10 μm and an imaging depth of more than 2.5 mm were obtained with this system. An existing time-domain 800 nm OCT system based on a Ti:Sapphire laser source is modified into a Fourier-domain system using a nearinfrared (NIR) spectrometer. This eliminates the need for mechanical scanning on the reference arm of the OCT system and improves the imaging time by a factor of 3.7.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/14524||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
