Purdue University scientists are developing a new imaging technology that allows for the first “visual fly-throughs” of a living tumor.

The technique, called optical coherence imaging, uses lasers, holograms, and real-time “dynamic holographic films,” consisting of alternating layers of gallium arsenide and aluminum gallium arsenide semiconductors.
