High speed full range complex spectral domain optical coherence tomography

We present a high speed full range spectral domain optical coherence tomography system. By inserting a phase modulator into the reference arm and recording of every other spectrum with a 90° phase shift (introduced by the phase modulator) we are able to distinguish between negative and positive optical path differences with respect to the reference mirror. A modified two- frame algorithm eliminates the problem of suppressing symmetric structure terms in the final image. To demonstrate the performance of our method we present images of the anterior chamber of the human eye in vivo recorded with an A-scan rate of 10000 depth profiles per second.
