2 October 2003 OCT system with the fiber optic interferometer and Cr:forsterite laser
Author Affiliations +
The possibility of using short-pulse laser with interferometric fiber-optic for diagnostic of tissues is presented. The Cr:Forsterite laser operated at 1300 nm is proposed and the first characteristics of such laser are presented. The detection of backscattering light is obtained by using the Michelson type fiber-optic interferometer. The main aspect of signal processing based on a phase calculation as well as theoretical system description in the Jones’ matrix approach is also presented.
