NExt generation of Tuneable LASers for optical coherence tomography

Project description

Tuneable laser training to boost OCT technique

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an established, non-invasive imaging technique that uses low-coherence light to capture multidimensional images with micrometre-resolution. It is used in medical imaging and industrial non-destructive testing. Tuneable lasers for OCT could optimise, upgrade and widen the use of this technology. The EU-funded NETLAS project will train European industry and innovation leaders in this field through an ‘Innovative Training Network’. Fifteen early stage researchers will participate in interdisciplinary research in collaboration with potential beneficiaries: five higher education institutions, three companies with associated hospitals and a non-profit institute. Three summer schools and an international conference will also be held.
