Recent advances in optical coherence tomography (OCT) have led to higher-speed sources that support imaging over longer depth ranges. Limitations in the bandwidth of state-of-the-art acquisition electronics, however, prevent adoption of these advances into the clinical applications. Here, we introduce optical-domain subsampling as a method for imaging at(More)
Optical-domain subsampling enables Fourier-domain OCT imaging at high-speeds and extended depth ranges while limiting the required acquisition bandwidth. To perform optical-domain subsampling, a wavelength-stepped rather than a wavelength-swept source is required. This preliminary study introduces a novel design for a rapid wavelength-stepped laser source(More)
Synovial fluid (SF) is a viscous ultrafiltrate of plasma that lubricates articulating joint motion. During acute trauma and certain cartilage repair procedures, blood is introduced into the joint and mixes with variable amounts of SF. The hypothesis of this study was that the dilution of blood with SF alters the rheological properties of the blood and the(More)
We demonstrate a novel high-speed and broadband laser architecture based on stretched pulse active mode locking that provides a wavelength-swept and wavelength-stepped output. The laser utilizes a single intracavity 8.3 meter chirped fiber Bragg grating to generate positive and negative dispersion, and can be operated with or without an intracavity fixed(More)
We introduce a wavelength-stepped laser that uses dispersive fibers in combination with a lithium-niobate modulator and a fixed Fabry-Perot etalon to achieve wavelength selection for optical-domain subsampled OCT. A 15 MHz A-scan rate is demonstrated.
We provide a framework for compensating errors within passive optical quadrature demodulation circuits used in swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT). Quadrature demodulation allows for detection of both the real and imaginary components of an interference fringe, and this information separates signals from positive and negative depth spaces.
