Abstract

We report an original two-dimensional time-resolved direct imaging method for transillumination optical tomography that combines the time-gating and forward phase-conjugation properties of type II degenerate parametric amplification. An object with subcentimeter resolution embedded in 4-cm-thick chicken breast tissue was imaged with a signal-to-noise ratio of 2.
