Paper Abstract

We report on the design and experimental demonstration of an all-fiber optical coherence tomography system in which residual chromatic dispersion is compensated for by a pair of fiber stretchers made with different fiber types. Both the dispersion variations resulting from fiber inhomogeneities and from a fiber length mismatch can be compensated for. Additionally, we anticipate that our system could be used to compensate for sample dispersion.
