The use of a pulsed fibre laser as an excitation source for photoacoustic tomography has been investigated. Fibre lasers have the advantage of being compact, robust and efficient compared to traditional excitation sources used for photoacoustic tomography (e.g. Q-switched Nd:YAG pumped OPO or dye systems). Their high pulse repetition frequencies and adjustable pulse duration, shape and duty cycle also enables a wide range of time and frequency domain excitation methods to be investigated.
