Ultrasound light tagging (USLT) and optical phase-conjugation focusing (OPCF) are novel techniques for labeling and focusing light deep into highly scattering tissue. . Light scattered in a volume exposed to ultrasound (US) will experience a wavelength shift due to the ultrasound wave. This can be employed to map optical characteristics of tissue with a resolution of the focused ultrasound beam. It has recently been suggested that light can be focused to locations deeply into highly scattering media using USLT. The development of such technique would open up entirely new and revolutionary potentials for biomedical diagnostics and therapy. This would be a label-free technique, thus non-toxic and with potentially great clinical applicability.The prospective PhD project is focused on developing these techniques. The work will include theoretical modeling of light propagation in tissue, and experimental work with the instrumentation.
