Polarization-sensitive spectral-domain optical coherence tomography using a multi-line single camera spectrometer.

Abstract

We describe a polarization sensitive spectral domain optical coherence tomography technique based on a single camera spectrometer that includes a multiplexed custom grating, camera lenses, and a high-speed three-line CCD camera. Two orthogonally polarized beams could be separately taken by two lines of the camera as a result of vertically different incident angles. The system could provide the imaging capabilities of a full camera speed and increased measurable depth. The proposed optical coherence tomography system could make a distinction between the normal muscle and cancerous tissue from the chest of a DSred GFP mouse and the OCT images were compared with those of in vivo confocal microscopy.
