Abstract
We report on a high-speed time-domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) technology that is capable of imaging 10 fps with 2000 A-scan. A duplex scanning optical delay line that is driven by a 1-kHz sinusoidal wave function was implemented and characterized. The reference and sample arms in a Michelson interferometer were simultaneously scanned using two identical piezoelectric transducers (PZTs). We adopted a sinusoidal wave function with constant voltages as the input functions for the PZTs. A recalibration of the measurement depth was necessary for the sinusoidal wave function operation. A recalibration with a spatial transformation was performed on the A-scan. We achieved an A-scan speed of 6 m/s. To the best our knowledge, this is the highest speed achieved in conventional TD-OCT systems to date.
