Paper Abstract

We show experimental results to determine the depth of inhomogeneities such as glass spheres and biological human tumors, in semi-solids organic materials, like gels (phantom), using the non invasive optical technique called 3D Pulsed Digital Holography (PDH). We reported previously that this technique may be used for the detection of biological tissues1. 3D Pulsed Digital Holography allowed us to make a quantitative analysis of the changes that the phantom suffers when it contains inhomogeneities as compared to a phantom that does not have one. The results obtained there showed quite remarkably the internal fault in semi-solids. In here we report early results obtained from three different object illumination positions that gave 3 wrapped phase maps that allowed the calculation of the depth position of the inhomogeneity within the phantom. The optical technique used looks at the phantom surface micro displacement, where measurements are correlated to the z position of the inhomogeneity inside the phantom. Likewise, the technique is able to show the deformation that the material undergoes in x, y, and z.
