A new model (3D) of OCT based on wave optics and Huygens- Fresnel Principle is derived in this paper. In this model, both axial and transverse information is included so that it can be used to discuss the image properties in both directions. The model is further simplified by narrow-band approximation and plane wave approximation. As applications of the simplified model, we developed Monte Carlo simulation programs to calculate the transverse resolution and to simulate the axial signal of our OCT system. The results well coincides the experiments.
