Optical coherence tomography is a fundamentally new type of optical sensing technology that can perform high-resolution, cross sectional sensing of the internal structure of materials and biological samples. This work briefly describes its capability of exploring and analyzing the internal structures and textures of various jades. With a depth resolution of 4 µm in jade and penetration range of 5 mm in jade, swept-source OCT could be used as a new powerful instrument to generate 3-D volume data of jade, which is important for applications in jade industry and artwork, particularly for jade detection and classification, counterfeit recognition, and guided artistic carving.
