13 April 2005 Parallel broadband fluorescent light source for optical coherence tomography
Author Affiliations +
We present a new light source for parallel Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) based on multiple waveguides written in Ti:sapphire. Each channel can generate a spectrum of 174 nm bandwidth centered at 772 nm, with an optical power on sample of 30 uW. A system depth resolution of 1.9 um is obtained, which correspond to 1.5 um in tissue.
