Paper Abstract

In this paper, we built up a single-detector PS-OCT system using only one detector. It displays interference light oscillation caused by tissue birefringence as grey image, eliminating the time-comsuming calculation in conventional two-detector PS-OCT. The periodicity of grey scale indicates the birefringence distribution of tissue, which is far more straightforward than Muller matrix or Stokes vector in conventional two-detector PS-OCT. The the imaging theory and setup of single-detector PS-OCT is discussed in detail, and experiment with bovine cartilage proved its ability of detecting tissue birefringence.
