Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides an alternative to physical sectioning that allows for imaging of living samples and even in vivo examination of cell structure and dynamics. There is, in the OCT community, a widely held belief that there exists a trade-off between transverse resolution and the thickness of the volume that may be imaged with a fixed focal plane. Efforts to overcome this trade-off have focused on the design optical elements and imaging hardware.

The evolution from classical to quantum information technology will be greatly facilitated by the formulation of incremental approaches to making the transition. This is a far greater challenge than might seem apparent, as today we know only of completely classical and fully quantum-mechanical models as practically sensible computing paradigms and the jump to fully-quantum hardware implementations lies well beyond our current technological capabilities. There is not even a convincing road map for getting there.
