Optical Tomography for Three-Dimensional Spectroscopy

Volume 48, Number 5 (May 1994) Page 12A-19A

Burns, David H.

Fundamental to the development of many scientific fields is the need for quantitative observation of a specimen in three dimensions. Examples include the nondestructive inspection of materials to locate defects, measurement of atmospheric pollutants, determination of the distribution of a dye in a cell, or in vivo measurements of metabolic activity in tissue. For these type of analyses, optical measurements to determine concentration of the probe molecule are commonly employed.
