Paper Abstract

Full-field swept source optical coherence tomography using an acousto-optically tuned external-cavity laser diode is proposed and demonstrated. The wavelength of the light source is controlled by diffraction in an acousto-optic modulator, instead of by mechanical motion. This allows tuning rates of over 100 kHz without mode hopping. For phase analysis, we used a continuous wavelet transform. This allows for accurate signal processing that reduces calculation error caused by the nonstationary features of an interference signal. We measured the two-dimensional thickness distribution of a thin glass plate. The average thickness of the glass plate was found to be 152.2 μm.
