Scopul nostru este sprijinirea şi promovarea cercetării ştiinţifice şi facilitarea comunicării între cercetătorii români din întreaga lume.
We kindly invite you to take part in this event organized by the Romanian Society for Lasers in Dentistry (July 13th-16th, 2017, Timisoara, Romania). Site of the event: http://lasercongress-srls.com/ The program of the Conference is organized on two sections: (i) Lasers in medicine and dentistry: Clinical applications; (ii) Optics, photonics, and biomedical imaging (with a focus on Optical Coherence Tomography). The International Society for OpticsRead more
Sealant materials are typically employed in dentistry in order to prevent the development of cavities on the teeth. They prevent bacterial adhesion to enamel, thus arresting the development of demineralization and of caries. In this study the critical zone of the interface between different sealant materials and the results of the dental work for the teeth processed were investigated ex vivo using Swept Source (SS) Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).Read more
We demonstrate the capability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to perform topography of metallic surfaces after being subjected to ductile or brittle fracturing. Two steel samples, OL37 and OL 52, and an anti-friction Sn-Sb-Cu alloy were analyzed. Using an in house built swept source (SS) OCT system height profiles were generated for the surfaces of the two samples. Based on such profiles, it can be concluded that the first two samples wereRead more
Three simple and low-cost configurations of handheld scanning probes for optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been developed. Their design and testing for dentistry applications are presented. The first two configurations were built exclusively from available off-the-shelf optomechanical components, which, to the best of our knowledge are the first designs of this type. The third configuration includes these components in an optimized and ergonomicRead more
Optical choppers with rotating wheels are some of the most used macroscopic optomechatronic devices for the controlled modulation, attenuation or obscuration of light in a wide area of applications. We discuss and compare the modulation functions produced by two types of chopper wheels: the classical device, with windows with linear edges, and the eclipse chopper (with windows with circular edges) that, to the best of our knowledge, we have introduced.Read more

We analyse three most common profiles of scanning functions for galvanometer-based scanners (GS), the sawtooth, triangular and sinusoidal functions. They are determined experimentally with regard to the scan parameters of the input signal (i.e. frequency and amplitude). We study the differences of the output function of the GS measured as the positional error of the oscillatory mirror from the ideal function given by the input signal of the device.Read more
