Abstract

We demonstrate ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) using continuum generation in an air-silica microstructure fiber as a low-coherence light source. A broadband OCT system was developed and imaging was performed with a bandwidth of 370 nm at a 1.3-μm center wavelength. Longitudinal resolutions of 2.5 μm in air and ∼2 μm in tissue were achieved. Ultrahigh-resolution imaging in biological tissue in vivo was demonstrated.
