We developed pulsed magneto-motive optical coherence tomography (PMM-OCT) to reduce environmental temperature in the measurement volume and to expand the effective magnetic field distance from a pulse source. The proposed PMM-OCT system consisted of a spectral-domain OCT system and a customarily designed electrical pulse generator. The enhanced magnetic field allowed the proposed system to be able to image magnetically labeled cells in a distance as far as 30 mm away from the pulse generator. As an easy and sensitive approach, our PMM-OCT may be beneficially applied to a molecular-level imaging systems.
