Paper Abstract

We present how to improve the efficiency and dynamic range for interferometric systems by taking advantage of the finite extinction ratio of a polarizing beam splitter. The technique has been demonstrated on a full-field OCT system by imaging of surfaces as well as transparent and turbid media.
