Paper Abstract

An algorithm for the simulation of Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of a cylinder based on an analytical solution of Maxwell's equations is presented. The characteristics of the simulated OCT signal are discussed and the whispering gallery modes as well as the geometrical optics signals from the cylinder are identified. An OCT scanner with an incident Gaussian beam is implemented to simulate two-dimensional B-scans.
