A novel all-optical non-contact photoacoustic microscopy system is introduced. The confocal configuration is used to ensure detection of initial pressure shock wave-induced intensity reflections at the subsurface origin where pressures are largest. Phantom studies confirm signal dependence on optical absorption, index-contrast, and excitation fluence. Taking advantage of a focused1310 nm interrogation beam, the penetration depth of the system is improved to ~ 2mm for an optical resolution system. High signal-to-noise ratios (>60dB) with ~ 2.5 cm working distance from the objective lens to the sample is achieved. Real-time in-vivo imaging of microvasculature and melanoma tumors are demonstrated.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
