Conceptual engineering design and optimization of laser-based imaging techniques and optical diagnostic systems used in the field of biomedical optics requires a clear understanding of the light-tissue interaction and peculiarities of localization of the detected optical radiation within the medium. The description of photon migration within the turbid(More)
In the framework of further development of the unified approach of photon migration in complex turbid media, such as biological tissues we present a peer-to-peer (P2P) Monte Carlo (MC) code. The object-oriented programming is used for generalization of MC model for multipurpose use in various applications of biomedical optics. The online user interface(More)
High dynamic range optical-to-near-infrared transmission measurements for different parts of human body in the spectral range from 650 to 950 nm have been performed. Experimentally measured spectra are correlated with Monte Carlo simulations using chromaticity coordinates in CIE 1976 L*a*b* color space. Both a qualitative and a quantitative agreement have(More)
Polarization-based optical techniques have become increasingly popular in the field of biomedical diagnosis. In the current report we exploit the directional awareness of circularly and/or elliptically polarized light backscattered from turbid tissue-like scattering media. We apply circularly and elliptically polarized laser light which illuminates the(More)
Within the framework of further development of unified Monte Carlo code for the needs of biomedical optics and biophotonics, we present an approach for modeling of coherent polarized light propagation in highly scattering turbid media, such as biological tissues. The temporal coherence of light, linear and circular polarization, interference, and the(More)
Low-frequency electric fields propagating in ex vivo biological tissues have been observed by using double-correlation optical coherence tomography (OCT). An adaptive Wiener filtering approach has been used to remove background noise, and a Fourier domain correlation algorithm has been applied to the sequence of OCT images. The results present the first(More)
The content of vitamin B1 in wheat and rye grain remained at a constant level and that of vitamin B2 gradually increased during germination over 5 days at 20°C (in the dark). Signifi cant difference was observed for rye within 1 day and for wheat in 2 days. By day 5, the content of vitamin B2 in both crops increased by 2.7-2.9 times above the baseline value.
Modeling of coherent polarized light propagation in turbid scattering medium by the Monte Carlo method provides an ultimate understanding of coherent effects of multiple scattering, such as enhancement of coherent backscattering and peculiarities of laser speckle formation in dynamic light scattering (DLS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) diagnostic(More)
Models of both the shape and material properties of physical objects are needed in many computer graphics applications. In many design applications, even if shape is not needed, it is desirable to start with the material properties of existing non-planar objects. We consider the design of a system to capture both shape and appearance of objects. We focus(More)
