Abstract

We correct an error in our previous paper [Biomed. Opt. Express 2, 1218 (2011)] which led to an erroneous conclusion that a dispersive optical delay line (DODL) used in a swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) system generated a pure phase modulation allowing for complex conjugate artifact removal in Fourier domain OCT via optical heterodyning. We now understand that an alternate phenomenon known as coherence revival was responsible for the observed phase modulation, while the DODL provided a compact means of generating a large group delay with readily adjustable group velocity dispersion compensation.
