Paper Abstract

Novel Fourier domain OCT method and instrumentation using Optical Frequency Comb (OFC) is demonstrated. This technique can overcome some limitations of Spectral OCT and Optical Frequency domain Imaging (Swept Source OCT) and enables ultrahigh resolution imaging in 800 nm range. In the novel method external OFC generator placed after the broad band light source is used. We will demonstrate preliminary data showing the general performance, advantages and limitations of the Fourier domain OCT method using Optical Frequency Comb generator based on Fabry-Perot interferometer (F-P). High quality, high resolution cross-sectional images of biological samples obtained with the presented technique are shown.
