Abstract

A high-speed ( 47,000 A - scans s ) , ultrahigh axial resolution Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system for retinal imaging at 1060 nm , based on a 1024   pixel linear array, 47 kHz readout rate InGaAs camera is presented. When interfaced with a custom superluminescent diode ( λ c = 1020 nm , Δ λ = 108 nm , P out = 9 mW ), the system provides 3.3 μ m axial OCT resolution at the surface of biological tissue, 4.5 μ m in vivo in rat retina, 5.7 μ m in vivo in human retina, and 110 dB sensitivity for 870 μ W incident power and 21 μ s integration time. Retinal tomograms acquired in vivo from a human volunteer and a rat animal model show clear visualization of all intraretinal layer and increased penetration into the choroid.
