Optical Characteristics of Corneal Nanostructure According to the Angle of Collagen-fiber-layer Arrangement

Open Access Open Access

Abstract

Collagen fibers tens of nanometers in size, which constitute most of the corneal volume of the human eye, are layered in a uniform direction, and adjacent fiber layers are arranged at an angle of 90° to each other. According to the results of this study, the transmittance at 45° of interlayer rotation angle is highest, and higher than that of the 90° body structure. The transmittance is examined, concerning the polarization state of the incident light; circularly polarized light case shows higher transmittance than linearly polarized. Through this, a simulation to confirm the deformed structure of collagen fibers, which show higher transmittance than the anatomical structure of the cornea, is attempted.
