Paper Abstract

Spectral characteristic biophotoreceptor in the human eye were determined using reflected optical wave from the retina and in this measurement have been used microspectrometric techniques. This measurements is possible only in vitro. We present new non-invasive correlation method ocular low coherence interferometry, which can be used in ophthalmology. Number of observed fringes in the Michelson interferometer is connected with spectral width biophotorecipient across Wiener-Khinchine transformation in case using of the partial coherent light sources. Such method allow determinate spectral sensitivity rod if sounded light is low intensity and application optical filter permit value red and violet border human eye. Change width interference fringes it is possible simultaneity measurement space sensitivity of the human retina which is very important in the ophthalmic diagnostic.
