Paper Abstract

Generation of flat and broadband supercontinum is demonstrated in an all fiber system using the high-energy noise-like pulses from a stable figure-of-eight fiber laser and nonlinear fibers. This SC source is successfully applied to the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). The axial resolution is significantly improved compared with the case of the superluminescent diode source. SD-OCT imaging is also demonstrated.
