Abstract

We demonstrate a new implementation of complex spectral optical coherence tomography (OCT) in biomedical imaging. By reconstruction of both amplitude and phase we are able to use the negative and positive optical path differences to get images of objects of considerable thickness. An accompanying reduction of coherent noise improves the quality of the images. The property of the complex spectral OCT that permits the measurement range to be increased and permits the simultaneous use of phase and amplitude in spectral systems was not described previously. To show the potential of this technique we measured an anterior chamber of a porcine eye in vitro.
