Compact Imaging and NUI Galway presentations at US photonics conference highlight the dramatic size and cost reductions made possible by MRO™ OCT Technology

Researchers and technologists from Compact Imaging, Inc. (CI) and their research collaboration partner NUI Galway, who together are developing miniature optical sensors that noninvasively image and measure subsurface characteristics of human tissue, had featured roles at the recent annual SPIE/Photonics West Conference, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

SPIE/Photonics West is the world’s premier photonics and bio-photonics industry conference. The conference, which is attended by scientists and industry executives from more than three dozen countries, consists of plenary sessions, presentations and panels on the latest research and developments in optics, photonics and bio-photonics.

Martin Leahy, professor of applied physics at the School of Physics in NUI Galway, and a key adviser to Compact Imaging, served as a conference chair and presented a significant paper on Compact Imaging’s innovative OCT technology, MRO™ (Multiple Reference OCT), titled, ‘The How and Why of a $10 Optical Coherence Tomography System’.
