Paper Abstract

Optical radar (LIDAR) is being used to remotely probe the atmosphere. Quantities that can be sensed on a path resolved basis include temperature, pressure, number density for specific molecules and atmospheric winds. We believe that the techniques used can be scaled down and used to analyze tissues in medical optics applications. As our first project using atmospheric optics technique, we are building a Heterodyne, Optical, Coherent tomography system for imaging tissue. This system will be described.
