Paper Abstract

Our study focuses on an analysis of the original method of investigation biological tissues in the spectral OCT (optical coherence tomography) with usage hyperchromatic lenses. Using hyperchromatic lens, i.e. the lens with uncorrected longitudinal color allows scanning in the depth of the object by changing the wavelength of the emitter. In this case, the depth of the scan will be determined not by the microlens depth of field, but the value of axial color. In our study, we demonstrated the advantages of this method of research on biological tissues existing. Spectral OCT schemes with the hyperchromatic lens could increase the depth of spectral scanning, eliminate the use of multi-channel systems with a set of microscope objectives, reduce the time of measurement. In our paper, we show the developed method of calculation of hyperchromatic lenses and hybrid hyperchromatic lens consisting of a diffractive and refractive component in spectral OCT systems. We also demonstrate the results of aberration calculation designed microscope lenses. We show examples of developed hyperchromatic lenses with the diffractive element and without it.
