Abstract

We present a simple processing technique that uses the concept of minimum-phase functions to improve frequency-domain optical coherence tomography systems. Our approach removes the autocorrelation noise and therefore increases both the accessible depth range and the recovery accuracy. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the concept of minimum-phase functions has been applied to improve optical coherence tomography.
