Paper Abstract

We use variable dispersion compensators to build time (TD-OCT) and spectral (SD-OCT) domain all-fiber optical coherence tomography systems operating in the 800 nm wavelength range. The all-fiber tunable dispersion compensator is based on a pair of fiber stretchers made with different fiber types in which the group delay and the 2nd-order dispersion can be tuned independently. Their abilities are demonstrated in biological tissues with the TD-OCT system reaching a significant sensitivity of 86 dB.
