Abstract

The development of techniques for high-speed image acquisition in optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems is essential for suppressing motion artifacts when one is imaging living systems. We describe a new OCT system for performing micrometer-scale, cross-sectional optical imaging at four images/s. To achieve OCT image-acquisition times of less than 1 s, we use a piezoelectric fiber stretcher to vary the reference arm delay. A Kerr-lens mode-locked chromium-doped forsterite laser is employed as the low-coherence source for the highspeed OCT system. Dynamic, motion-artifact-free in vivo imaging of a beating Xenopus laevis (African frog) heart is demonstrated.
