Biomedical imaging and laser technology

Research Topics

Prof. Robert Huber developed a new laser concept, the FDML laser. By storing the light field in a extra long cavity, very rapid wavelength swept sources were possible. This technique is very advantageous in optical coherence tomography (OCT) as it makes very fast imaging feasible. Our group focuses on the development of fast FDML lasers and their implementation in ultra fast OCT, as well as the development of new applications, like non-linear Raman imaging.
