Abstract

A novel optical coherence tomography (OCT) system is presented that combines Fourier-domain OCT with incoherent nonlinear time gating. By processing backscattered light in the optical domain, the user can select a restricted depth field of view for improved contrast and acquisition speed. This technique has the additional advantage that imaging is done in the infrared ( 1280 nm ) but is detected in the visible ( 504 nm ) .
