Abstract

Complex-conjugate-resolved Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography, where the quadrature components of the interferogram are obtained by simultaneous acquisition of the first and second harmonics of the phase-modulated interferogram, is applied to multisurface test targets and biological samples. The method provides efficient suppression of the complex-conjugate, dc, and autocorrelation artifacts. A complex-conjugate rejection ratio as high as 70 ‚ÄČ dB is achieved.
