Paper Abstract

We show that in Fourier domain Optical Coherence Tomography (FdOCT) it is possible to determine the wavelength of light for each point of the detected spectrum using any measurable physical quantity that has linear dependency on wavenumber. The presented approach is robust as the actual values of the measured quantity have no importance for the algorithm. As example we calibrate a SOCT spectrometer using Doppler frequency induced in time-dependent spectral fringes by a mirror moving in one of the arm of the interferometer. The results of calibration are validated using narrow spectral lines generated by optical parametric oscillator.
