Paper Abstract

A tomographic imaging system based on the principle of an optical frequency domain reflectometry is presented. The light source is a tunable laser diode whose optical frequency is scanned over 6.3 THz during 5.76 s, and the photosensor is a CCD camera of wide dynamic range. The main performance of this system can measure simultaneously the 3-D information of reflectivity through scattering media without the need for mechanical scanning.
