Multi-modal AO-LSO Phase Gradient Imaging of the Inner Retina
Under a research program from the National Institutes of Health, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) is continuing the pursuit of new clinical applications and advanced multimodal capabilities for its novel retinal imaging technology based on an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO).
PSI’s Compact Adaptive Optics Retinal Imager (CAORI) reduces the clinical footprint compared to research AO-SLO and simplifies AO optical design while preserving the confocal advantage. PSI is incorporating a powerful new modality for phase gradient imaging (PGI) in the inner retina.
NARUC and DPU visit PSI Headquarters in Andover, MA

Multimodal Otoendoscope for Non-invasive Diagnosis of Middle Ear Pathology
Under a research program from the National Institutes of Health, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), is developing a clinical otoendoscopic imaging system that combines PsOCT/RS with conventional video otoendoscopy,
Measurement of Retinal Nerves and Blood Vessels as Markers for Type I Diabetes
Under a research program from the National Institutes of Health, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) is developing a new tool for researchers and clinicians to investigate and monitor changes of retinal microstructures due to type 1diabetes disease progression or response to treatment.
In Vivo Laryngeal Imaging Using Parallel OCT/Video Stroboscopy
Physical Sciences Inc. has been awarded a research program by the National Institutes of Health to develop a novel 3-D clinical imaging system combining parallel OCT and videostroboscopy into a cost-effective, common path transoral endoscope that will result in improved assessment of voice.
Production of High Conductivity, Carbon-rich Materials from Coal
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the Department of Energy to develop an efficient process for the production of high conductivity, carbon-rich materials from coal.
Smart Template for Prostate Biopsy Guidance
Physical Sciences Inc, in collaboration with the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is developing a double-action Smart Template to aid transperineal targeted prostate biopsies and subsequent focal therapy procedures performed under MRI-guidance.
Ultra-compact Laser Ceilometer for Boundary Layer and Cloud Height Retrievals
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a research contract from the Department of Energy to demonstrate a highly compact, automated, low power ceilometer to make retrievals of cloud base and boundary layer heights from remote unattended sites.
Optical Probe for Rapid In-situ Survey of Soil Moisture and Carbon
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Energy, to demonstrate the feasibility of an easily-deployed optical probe for rapid evaluation of the vertical distribution of soil moisture and organic carbon content in the top several meters of soil.
Controlled Porosity and Surface Coatings for Advanced Gas Diffusion Layers
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the Department of Energy to develop a low cost manufacturing process for advanced fuel cell components.
Polymer electrolyte fuel cells are a leading candidate to replace internal combustion engines for light duty vehicles, but their performance is below current targets. The gas diffusion layers in the fuel cell are one component that limits the performance. These limits can be addressed by structuring porosity in the gas diffusion layers to enhance transport mechanisms and provide greater durability.
