Ultra-Broadband Sources for Optical Coherence Tomography

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PAR-01-102
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06
PI: Vijaysekhar Jayaraman

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The future of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in research and clinical medicine depends, to a large extent, on the development of better light sources. Portable sources with much wider bandwidths and higher single mode power are required to achieve the long standing goal of subcellular imaging in highly...

Compact Multi-Wavelength Probe for Quantitative Tissue *

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PAR-03-125
Budget: 07/01/05 - 05/31/06
PI: Vijaysekhar Jayaraman

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Quantitative near infrared tissue spectroscopy in the 650-1000nm wavelength range is a sensitive non-invasive tool for measuring tissue optical properties, and correlating them with tissue components such as water, lipids, oxy-hemoglobin, and deoxy-hemoglobin. In particular, the use of both frequency domai...

Dense Multi-Wavelength Laser Clusters for Near Infrared Agricultural Spectroscopy

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05
PI: Vijaysekhar Jayaraman

Although Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRs) is a powerful non-invasive technique for identifying constituent components in a variety of agricultural products, current NIRs instrumentation is bulky and expensive, and requires long measurement times. This limits the use of NIRs in remote settings and high-speed sorting applications. This project se...

Dense Multi-Wavelength Laser Clusters for Near Infrared Agricultural Spectroscopy

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03
PI: Vijaysekhar Jayaraman

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRs) is widely recognized as a powerful non-invasive tool for rapid analysis of constituent components in a variety of agricultural products. Despite the power of NIRs, commercially available NIRs systems are large and expensive, consume large amounts of electrical power, and contain a number o...
