Paper Abstract

Polarization sensitive Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (PS-FD-OCT) using fiber components with continuous polarization modulation is demonstrated. The incident polarized light is modulated by electro-optic modulator (EO modulator) synchronized with lateral B-scanning. By the incident polarization modulation and the polarization sensitive spectrometer, the depth-resolved Jones matrix image of biological sample can be measured. This method uses both polarization modulation method and Fourier transform method. In this paper, the algorithm is described and the phase retardation image of chicken breast muscle is measured.
