Paper Abstract

We developed a optical coherence tomographic (OCT) system that utilized broadband continuum generation from a crystal fiber for high axial resolution. Longitudinal resolution of 3 micrometers has been achieved in free space with continuum light from 780 to 1400nm as light source. The system employed a dynamic focusing tracking method to get high lateral resolution. Ultrahigh resolution imaging in onion was demonstrated.
