Monte Carlo simulation in optical coherence tomography for quality inspection of materials
2013 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Quality inspection of materials is one of modern applications of optical coherence tomography (OCT) featuring non-invasiveness and high speed required for in-production control of such materials as paper and alumina ceramics. Some of materials to be controlled are characterized by high scattering which can introduce distortions to the obtained OCT images, therefore additional interpretation can be required in order to evaluate material quality. In order to understand formation of OCT images of highly scattering materials samples and evaluate OCT potential for their quality inspection Monte Carlo simulations could be employed. This paper discusses application of Monte Carlo technique for simulation of OCT inspection of paper and alumina ceramics samples. Implementation of Monte Carlo simulation allows to evaluate the effect of OCT setup parameters and material properties on formation of the OCT-images. Multilayer models of paper and alumina ceramics structures are involved in the study.
