Abstract
We present a new design of a 1060nm Fourier Domain Mode Locked-Laser (FDML-Laser) that combines 1.67 MHz A-scan rate with a centimeter scale coherence length. The extended coherence length is achieved by synchronizing the cavity roundtrip time over the 75 nm sweep with a relative accuracy of 10-7. We will show that this requires careful combination of multiple fiber types in the cavity with a gradient heated chirped Fiber Bragg grating.
