Slow light filters with MHz frequency resolution for enhancing the contrast in ultrasound-modulated optical tomography


The principal idea of UOT is to use the acousto-optic effect, where the ultrasound shifts the frequency of the light. The resolution of UOT (~ mm) is determined by the ultrasonic wave focus and duration, and the UOT contrast is determined by the optical properties of the tissue.
