Abstract
Southwest Sciences proposes to develop innovative instrumentation for the rapid, 3-dimensional imaging of biological tissues with cellular resolution. Our approach is a variant of optical coherence tomography that will use a very small, low power and compact white light source to provide 2 micrometer or better image resolution. This device will enable NASA researchers to non-invasively study the structure of living, functioning tissues and cells. The instrumentation is based on a compact, low cost, low power white light source and can be designed for operation in spaced-based laboratories.
