Multiplexing-based polarization sensitive en-face optical coherence tomography

Paper Abstract

We present a time-domain polarization-sensitive (PS) optical coherence tomography configuration operating at 830 nm, equipped with multichannel acousto-optic deflectors and single photodetectors. The system is used to simultaneously acquire interference information from multiple PS channels and to enable measurement and imaging of backscattered intensity to create both PS and polarization insensitive images. Our approach enables multiple channel imaging without need to divide the object signal. Here, we employ our system in order to demonstrate PS imaging of a thermally damaged muscle tissue.
