Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a powerful imaging technique for biological tissue. OCT can perform real time, in situ imaging of tissue cross sectional microstructure with micron resolution. The spatial resolution of OCT depends directly on the optical bandwidth and thus on the coherence length of the used light source. Using a femtosecond modelocked Ti:sapphire laser as a low coherence source, in vivo imaging of biological tissue is demonstrated with spatial resolution below 2 μm.
