ABSTRACT

The field of acousto-optics has been studied since the mid 1990s, developing multiple techniques for the detection of ultrasound-modulated light. The technique is based on that light is frequency shifted as it interacts with tissue exposed to ultrasound. This “tagged” light can be detected, as well as be employed to time-reversing light for focusing light into a target volume in tissue. In this report we present a some of the more recent developments within acousto-optics for biomedical applications.
