Paper Abstract

One of the main drawbacks of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography is its inability to differentiate positive and negative depths. A technique recently developed consists in introducing a transverse modulation between consecutive A-scans: this is the B-M mode scanning technique. This paper deals with the condition required on the transverse step to efficiently remove artifacts in a swept-source optical coherence tomography setup. This condition is illustrated by showing measurements on an onion acquired with different transverse steps and different focusing optics.
