Optics tech drives CES innovations

From smart glasses to autonomous vehicles, photonics technology and the world of consumer electronics seem closer than ever.

Steve Jacques

In December 2018, the Journal of Biomedical Optics (JBO) published a collection of research papers in honor of Steven L. Jacques, PhD, a leading pioneer in the field of biomedical optics. This article, which was originally published as a guest editorial in JBO, introduced the special section.

Cornea OCT

The microscope uses a combination of optical coherence tomography, a liquid lens, and a microelectromechanical system mirror to provide beautifully sharp corneal images that help technicians assess the quality of the donated cornea. When combined with a neural network, automated cell counting prior to corneal translplant may be possible.
