Paper Abstract

We have developed a 24-channel simultaneous measurement system for optical topography that noninvasively obtains dynamic images of brain activity over a measurement area of 90 mm by 90 mm. To evaluate the system performance, we utilized a phantom containing a rotating absorber in a cylindrical scattering medium. In this system, eight incident and eight detecting optical fibers are arranged alternately at points of a square lattice on the phantom. The phantom is illuminated with light of two wavelengths (780 and 830 nm) from each incident fiber. Reflected light is received by the detecting fibers, each of which is connected to an avalanche photodiode. Multiple modulation and lock-in detection are used to enable highly sensitive measurement with negligible crosstalk (less than -50 dB). In the phantom measurement, we obtained topographic dynamic images of the absorber rotating in the medium with a temporal resolution of 0.5 s.
