Abstract
We present a method to obtain additional depth resolved spectroscopic information from standard frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) images. This method utilizes Fourier transforms of signal peaks within the complex FDOCT depth profiles to extract depth resolved spectroscopic information. For verification of the depth resolved spectroscopic image analysis method, theoretical simulations as well as experimental studies are demonstrated. Both show accurate depth resolved spectroscopic reconstruction enabling a depth allocation of material specific transmission spectra due to absorption. This analysis tool improves significantly the image contrast and allows image mapping of material specific spectral characteristics.
