Optional Fields
optical coherence tomography time domain multiple reference optical imaging interferometry miniature optical delay
A time-domain optical coherence tomography system with respect to multiple reflections in the reference arm is simulated with Zemax and the optimal detector position is discussed based on the wavefront error. Multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) is a novel optical imaging platform using a single miniature actuator and partial mirror to recirculate light multiple times within the interferometric system. The recirculation corresponds to multiple path delays extending effectively the axial scan-range. The simulation of MR-OCT with lenses of 5 mm diameter shows that it is suitable to build a compact system using low-cost components. Subsequently MR-OCT enables an affordable miniature OCT for low recourse settings and personal or point-of-care applications.
