Specular reflection from the surface of targets or prepared specimens represents a significant problem in optical microscopy and related optical imaging techniques as usually the surface reflection does not contribute to the desired signal. Solutions exist for many of these imaging techniques; however, remedial techniques for imaging based on laser feedback interferometry (LFI) are absent. We propose a reflection cancellation technique based on crossed-polarization filtering that is tailored for a typical LFI configuration. The technique is validated with three experimental designs, and a significant improvement of about 40 dB in the ratio of the diffuse and specular LFI signal is observed. Applications of this principle extend from specular reflection removal to characterization of target materials in industrial to biomedical domains.

Tomographic imaging of soft tissue such as skin has a potential role in cancer detection. The penetration of infrared wavelengths makes a confocal approach based on laser feedback interferometry feasible. We present a compact system using a semiconductor laser as both transmitter and receiver. Numerical and physical models based on the known optical properties of keratinocyte cancers were developed. We validated the technique on three phantoms containing macro-structural changes in optical properties. Experimental results were in agreement with numerical simulations and structural changes were evident which would permit discrimination of healthy tissue and tumour. Furthermore, cancer type discrimination was also able to be visualized using this imaging technique.
