Paper Abstract

A narrow line-width dual band Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) swept source at center wavelength of 1310 nm for long imaging range high speed and high resolution Fourier domain optical coherence tomography was demonstrated. A fiber Fabry-Perot tunable filter working at multi-spectral band mode is used for wavelength selection in the FDML swept source. The interference signals in two spectral bands are separated into two channels for detection by use of WDM couplers with pass-bands matching the spectral bands of the Fabry-Perot tunable filter. The line-width of the output light from the swept source can be as narrow as 0.04 nm thanks to the small tuning range within each spectral band, while high axial resolution of the FDOCT system can still be obtained since the total scanning range combining multi bands is more than 100 nm.
