Acousto-optic Sensing and Imaging

acousto-optic-gif

We exploit acousto-optics, a hybrid optical and ultrasound technique, to perform sensing and imaging for biomedical applications. Acousto-optic technqiues can provide a localised measurement of both optical and acoustic properties in a turbid medium, thanks to the ability of focused ultrasound to "tag" light at a specific region.
