Abstract

We demonstrate a novel polarization-sensitive optical frequency domain imaging system employing passive polarization multiplexing. Simple modification of a fiber delay line in the wavelength-swept light source enables illumination with two perpendicular polarizations that are required for determination of the Stokes vector components of the light reflected from each depth of the tissue. This simple all-passive approach provides a robust and low-cost solution for PS imaging replacing relatively complex conventional schemes such as polarization modulation or frequency-encoded polarization multiplexing.
