It is well known that optical density (OD) of the radiochromic film (RCF) continues to grow after exposure at rates that have a complex dependence on dose, temperature, and densitometry wavelength. Dose rate and fractionation artifacts associated with variations in OD growth may limit the accuracy achievable by RCF dosimetry in brachytherapy and external beam applications, particularly at low doses (<5 Gy) and low dose rates (<10 cGy/h) where OD growth and sensitivity effects are large. To identify densitometry wavelengths that minimize OD growth artifacts and enhance RCF sensitivity at low doses, we have investigated Model MD-55-2 RCF response as a function of densitometry wavelength, irradiation-to-densitometry time interval, dose and temperature.

Estimation of the bulk optical properties of turbid samples from spatially resolved reflectance measurements remains challenging, as the relation between the bulk optical properties and the acquired spatially resolved reflectance profiles is influenced by wavelength-dependent properties of the measurement system. The resulting measurement noise is apparent in the estimation of the bulk optical properties. In this study, a constrained inverse metamodeling approach is proposed to overcome these problems.

Background: There is no guideline for the appropriate wavelength at which to measure the optical density (OD) value in broth microdilution antifungal susceptibility testing, although a spectrophotometric reading method is commonly used. The present study aimed to analyze the difference in the OD values over the range of visible light and to ascertain the optimal wavelength for the spectrophotometric method of microdilution testing.
Methods: We measured the OD of background blank controls of broth medium, antifungal agents, and inocula of five type strains using a Synergy HT multi-detection microplate reader at 5-nm intervals from 380 nm to 760 nm. Read More

We introduce a novel method for determining analyte concentration as a function of depth in a highly scattering media by use of a dual-wavelength optical coherence tomography system. We account for the effect of scattering on the measured attenuation by using a second wavelength that is not absorbed by the sample. We assess the applicability of this technique by measuring the concentration of water in an Intralipid phantom, using a probe wavelength of 1. Read More
