Abstract
We present a sensor for acquisition of cross-sectional images of volume scatterers, we call it 'spectral radar'. Medical and technical applications are possible. The sensor is a modified Michelson interferometer, with a broad bandwidth light source. The scattering amplitude a(z) along one vertical axis from the surface into the bulk can be measured within one exposure. No reference arm scanning is necessary. Measurement results of stationary and non stationary scattering phantoms, human skin and of a fish eye in vitro are shown.
