Characterization of birefringence in a rabbit cornea Conference Paper uri icon


  • A noninvasive optical polarimetric sensor was developed for use in in vivo characterizing the variations in corneal birefringence in a rabbit model via the use of Mueller matrix theory. The sensor was developed with a known birefringent material followed by in vitro studies. The system provided higher intensities at he edges as expected, thus indicating increased birefringence.
