Paper Abstract

A fibre-based full-range polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography system is developed to enable complete capture of the structural and birefringence properties of the anterior segment of the human eye in a single acquisition. The system uses a wavelength swept source centered at 1.3 μm, passively depth-encoded, orthogonal polarisation states in the illumination path and polarisation-diversity detection. Off-pivot galvanometer scanning is used to extend the imaging range and compensate for sensitivity drop-off. A Mueller matrix-based method is used to analyse data. We demonstrate the performance of the system and discuss issues relating to its optimisation.
