Abstract

We comment on the recent Letter by Jiao <i>et al.</i> [Opt. Lett. <i>28,</i> 1206 (2003)] in which a polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography system was presented. Interrogating a sample with two orthogonal incident polarization states cannot always recover birefringence correctly. A previously presented fiber-based polarization-sensitive system was inaccurately characterized, and its method of eliminating the polarization distortion caused by single-mode optical fiber was presented earlier by Saxer <i>et al.</i> [Opt. Lett. <i>25,</i> 1355 (2000)].
