Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging modality that produces high-resolution images of tissue up to a few millimetres in depth.

Although the axial (depth) resolution of OCT imaging is sufficient for use in ophthalmology, the lateral resolution is hampered by aberrations in the lens and cornea of the eye. While adaptive optics can compensate such irregularities, integrating that with OCT is complex and costly. To overcome these problems, the IOP project ‘i-OCT’ will develop integrated smart optics technology.
