Visualization of Plant Tissues by Optical Coherence Tomography

Visualization of Plant Tissues by Optical Coherence Tomography The internal structure of plant tissues was visualized with optical coherence tomography (OCT). This noninvasive method is suitable for examining intact plants; it produces two-dimensional images of plant tissues at a penetration depth of 1–2 mm from the surface. The potential use of OCT was assessed on Tradescantia blossfeldiana Mild. Plant tissue images measuring 1.5 × 2 mm were obtained in vivo with a spatial resolution of 15 μm.

Abstract

The internal structure of plant tissues was visualized with optical coherence tomography (OCT). This noninvasive method is suitable for examining intact plants; it produces two-dimensional images of plant tissues at a penetration depth of 1–2 mm from the surface. The potential use of OCT was assessed on Tradescantia blossfeldiana Mild. Plant tissue images measuring 1.5 × 2 mm were obtained in vivo with a spatial resolution of 15 μm. The radiation power incident on a sample was 0.5 mW. The acquisition of a two-dimensional image consisting of 200 × 200 pixels required 1–3 s. The OCT method can be used to visualize not only plant tissues and tissue boundaries but also the structure of individual cells.
