An in vivo study of turbidity suppression by optical phase conjugation (TSOPC) on rabbit ear.

Cui M, McDowell EJ, Yang C - Opt Express (2010)

Bottom Line: We present a holography-based in vivo optical phase conjugation experiment performed on a living rabbit ear.We monitor the signal decay time variation after the ear is excised to postulate different mechanisms that cause the signal decay.The experimental findings address the minimum speed limit of a broad range of optical time reversal experiments for in vivo applications on tissues.

ABSTRACT
We present a holography-based in vivo optical phase conjugation experiment performed on a living rabbit ear. The motion of live tissues caused the phase conjugate signal to decay with a consistent decay time of less than two seconds. We monitor the signal decay time variation after the ear is excised to postulate different mechanisms that cause the signal decay. The experimental findings address the minimum speed limit of a broad range of optical time reversal experiments for in vivo applications on tissues.

(a-f) TSOPC signal decay measured when the rabbit is alive and 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 24 hours after the ear is excised. The data are fitted with an exponential function (red line).
