Paper Abstract

We report the development of a combined dual-modal photoacoustic and optical coherence tomography (PA-OCT) system using a single near-infrared (NIR) supercontinuum laser source which can provide both optical absorption and scattering contrasts simultaneously. By using a small sized pulsed Nd:YAG microchip laser and a photonic crystal fiber, we fabricated a pulsed broadband supercontinuum source from 600 to 1700 nm. Under the same optical hardware system, intrinsically registered PA and OCT images are acquired in a single scanning. In order to demonstrate feasibility of our system, we successfully acquired the PA and OCT images of black and white hairs images at the same time. The black hair was detected in both PA and OCT images, while the white hair appeared only in the OCT image. This result suggests the potential of compact, cost-effective, and simple dual-modal PA-OCT system. Moreover, we believe that this approach will be a key point for commercialization and clinical translation.
