Abstract
We demonstrate 3-D optical coherence tomography using only 1-D mechanical scanning. This system uses the principle of Fourier domain optical coherence tomography for depth resolution, 1-D imaging for lateral vertical resolution, and mechanical scanning by a galvanometer for lateral horizontal resolution. An in vivo human fingerpad is investigated in three dimensions with an image size of 480 points (vertical) × 300 points (horizontal) × 1024 points (depth), which corresponds to 2.1×1.4×1.3 mm. The acquisition time for a single cross section is 1 ms and that for a single volume is 10 s. The system sensitivity is 75.6 dB at a probe beam power of 1.1 mW.
