Pulsed ultrasound-modulated optical tomography using spectral hole-burning Conference Paper uri icon


  • We present a novel optical quantum sensor using spectral hole-burning for detecting signals in ultrasound-modulated optical tomography. In this technique, we utilize the capability of sub-MHz spectral filtering afforded by a spectral hole burning crystal to select the desired spectral component from the ultrasound-modulated diffuse light. This technique is capable of providing a large etendue, processing a large number of speckles in parallel, tolerating speckle decorrelation, and imaging in real-time. Experimental results are presented.
