Paper Abstract

We have developed a scanning fiber-optic probe compatible with high-speed polarization-sensitive OCT imaging. The effect of sample arm fiber motion on the polarization state of light incident on a sample is demonstrated by the evolution of incident Stokes vectors during the course of acquiring a single image. By referencing the polarization state of light backscattered from within a sample to the measured surface state, effects of motion-induced birefringence can be isolated. Conventional and polarization-sensitive images of human tissues are presented.
