13 April 2005 Polarization-sensitive Fourier domain optical coherence tomography
Author Affiliations +
A fiber based polarization-sensitive Fourier domain optical coherence tomography system was demonstrated. The complex fringe signal containing amplitude and phase information was acquired by cancellation of DC and autocorrelation terms as well as the mirror image using an electro-optic phase modulator. The Stokes vectors of the reflected and scattered light from sample were determined by processing the analytical complex fringe signals from two perpendicular polarization-detection channels. From the Stokes vectors for four different input polarization states, the birefringence image and the polarization diversity intensity image were obtained.
