Abstract
The inclusion of radiation polarization considerably extends the sensitivity and the potentials of optical coherence tomography. The recorded signals are however skewed by using wide-band light sources and polarization sensitive elements, as well as by frequency dispersion of the objects under study. It is essential for such layered system with spatial anisotropy as eye cornea and sclera.
