Subsurface Imaging via a Liquid Lens

Jannick Rolland from the University of Rochester has developed a new liquid lens that shows images from under the skin’s surface. The technology may be used to examine and detect any benign or cancerous skin lesions noninvasively. Within seconds of contact with the tissue, the foot-long probe is able to depict a high-resolution, 3D image of what lies subsurface. The device uses Optical Coherence Microscopy, a process developed by Rolland’s team and is essentially a liquid lens and electrical field setup.
