Abstract: This doctoral research work aims at designing and implementation of a spread-spectrum correlation-based novel Laplace-domain DOT system and explore its potential for human brain imaging. The system architecture is based on laser intensity modulation with a high-speed pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS) and cross-correlating the optical signal from the biological tissue with the identical PRBS, to retrieve the time-dependent measurements of diffusive photons propagating through the tissue. A direct Laplace transformation of the time-resolved signal is implemented to extract feature dataset which significantly reduces data acquisition time or increase signal-to-noise ratio. The imaging system with 40 channels is evaluated using static and dynamic optical phantoms and hemodynamic changes are measured in the prefrontal cortex by designing a few mental activity tasks. The results of preliminary in vivo experiments are in agreement with literature. In addition, the system has a small form factor which makes it portable.
