Abstract

We demonstrate a polarization-sensitive spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system based on polarization-maintaining fiber technology. Using a single-line-scan camera, the system produces reflectivity and retardance information along a depth profile with a single measurement. The relative axis orientation is available as well. System design and characterization and images of a biological tissue are presented.
