Paper Abstract

We designed a polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) system to study the tissue polarization properties. The system has a dual-configuration scheme with the capability of easily switching the state of probing beam in the sample arm between linear polarization (LP) and circular polarization (CP). This setup will give four sets of 2-D tomographic data for each sample measurement, thus reveal more polarization information embedded in the biological tissue than a standard two-channel CP-configured PS-OCT system. The imaging results of LPCP-OCT for dentin and enamel of tooth samples are compared and discussed.
