We have developed an extended source optical coherence tomography (SEES-OCT) technique in an attempt to improve signal strength for ophthalmic imaging. A line illumination with a visual angle of 7.9 mrad is produced by introducing a dispersive element in the infinity space of the sample arm. The maximum permissible exposure (MPE) of such an extended source(More)
Diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) such as meningitis or encephalitis may represent events of public health interest due to emerging infections and/or NIH/CDC Category B priority pathogens. Apart from influencing treatment and management of the index case, some diagnoses such as meningococcal meningitis warrant an immediate public health response.(More)
This paper deals with joint source-relay-destination beamforming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay network. Considering the channel state information (CSI) from the relay to the destination is imperfect, we first aim to maximize the worst case received SNR under per-antenna power constraints. The associated optimization problem is then(More)
Frequency domain optical imaging (OFDI) provides high resolution and sensitivity. However, the speed of the data processing program in C language limits its application. A real-time imaging system of OFDI based on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is proposed. It adopts a high-speed digitizer board PXI14400 from Signatec for interferometric data(More)
—This paper deals with joint source and relay beam-forming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) multi-antenna multirelay network. Considering that the channel state information (CSI) from relays to destination is imperfect, we aim to maximize the worst case received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The associated optimization problem is then solved in(More)
We demonstrate a novel method that employs a frame-accumulation and shaped-function technique to improve an image sensor's detection sensitivity using probability statistics. It can obtain the unbiased estimate for the low-light-level image signal, thus upgrading the signal-to-noise ratio to a high degree. It was verified by an experiment in a sealed box.(More)
The method which employs the frame accumulation and shaped function is effective in low-light-level imaging. However, it has drawbacks of lower imaging speed and complex operation. To optimize the method, we provide the design of an improved low-light-level imaging system with higher detection sensibility. The design is developed specifically for a faster(More)
