Paper Abstract

The influence of low-coherence source parameters on the optical coherence tomography imaging has been studied. Experimentally and theoretically it is demonstrated, that by summing autocorrelation function of two superluminescent diodes with different wavelength, the effective coherent length of the source and signal-to-noise ratio required to identify the central fringe position can be greatly reduced.
