Superstructure-grating distributed Bragg reflector lasers are particularly suited for optical frequency-domain reflectometry optical-coherence tomography with wide wavelength tunability and frequency agility. We report theoretical estimates of and experimental results for the data acquisition speed, the observable depth range, the resolution, and the(More)
We describe high-speed Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) using optical demultiplexers (ODs) for spectral dispersion. The OD enables separation of a narrow spectral band of 14 GHz (0.11 nm) from a broadband incident light at 256 different frequencies in 25.0 GHz intervals centered at 192.2 THz (1559.8 nm). OCT imaging of 60,000,000 axial(More)
BACKGROUND Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a promising diagnostic tool in many medical fields. In particular, noninvasive real-time optical biopsy of internal organs is one of the most attractive applications of OCT, enabling in situ diagnosis of carcinoma at an early stage. We used an ultra-high speed OCT system for real-time(More)
We describe a high-speed long-depth range optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) system employing a long-coherence length tunable source and demonstrate dynamic full-range imaging of the anterior segment of the eye including from the cornea surface to the posterior capsule of the crystalline lens with a depth range of 12 mm without removing complex(More)
An interesting property of Gaussian 1/f noise was found experimentally a few years ago: The amplitude truncation does not change the power spectral density of the noise under rather general conditions. Here we present a brief theoretical derivation of this invariant property of band-limited Gaussian 1/f noise and include 1/f(alpha) noises also with(More)
We study a kind of filtering, an amplitude truncation with upper and lower truncation levels xmax and xmin. This is a generalization of the simple transformation y(t) = sgn[x (t)], for which a rigorous result was obtained recently. So far numerical experiments have shown that a power law spectrum 1/f seems to be transformed again into a power law spectrum(More)
