Abstract
A detection method based on 7 spectral windows at the photodetection stage in an optical coherence tomography system was tested. We investigated its utility in two directions: spectroscopic optical coherence tomography and signal to noise ratio improvement. A diffraction grating was used in the photodetection unit to diffract light over a 16 photodetector array. Currently, this array has been configured to deliver 7 channels only by binning two adjacent photodetectors. The improvement of the signal to noise ratio has been investigated. Preliminary results of spectroscopy analysis which will be shown are B-scan OCT imaging of paint layers. The ultimate aim of the project is to perform spectroscopic analysis of the retina.
