Abstract

A novel optical scheme for a phase shifting method of Fourier domain optical coherence tomography is presented. With this method we avoid a mechanical scan for phase shifting (mechanical M-scan) by using a reference beam with tilted wavefront. The principle of this system is confirmed with a simple mirror object. This method is applied on a biological sample and used to investigate a porcine anterior eye chamber.
