Samueli – Stein Ophthalmology team wins UCLA Innovation Fund, on sub-micrometer precision high-rate laser medical imaging at the thermodynamical limits. The Glaucoma Advanced Imaging Laboratory at UCLA Stein Eye Institute specializes in laser optical coherence tomography for glaucoma diagnostics. In parallel, UCLA Electrical & Computer Engineering has developed precision measurements based on ultrafast mode-locked lasers. Combining their expertise, the Samueli-Stein Eye team is advancing efforts to image the retina and optic nerve head structures at sub-micrometer resolution.

Organized by the UCLA Technology Development Group, this UCLA Innovation Fund seeks to commercialize laboratory technology into high impact applications and diagnostics in ophthalmology.
