Paper Abstract

Parallel optical coherence tomography is demonstrated at video rate using a 58 by 58 smart-pixel detector array. A sample volume of 210x210x80 micrometers3 (corresponding to 58x58x58 voxels) was imaged at 25 Hz. A femtosecond mode-locked Ti:Sapphire laser in combination with a free space Michelson interferometer was employed to achieve a 3 micrometer longitudinal resolution. We used 20x microscope objectives in both sample arm and reference arm and measured a 8 micrometer transverse resolution. The sensitivity of the system was 76 dB.
