Abstract

We report the construction and characterization of an all-reflective optical coherence tomography (OCT) system using a newly developed compact fiber-based broadband supercontinuum source. The use of only reflective optical components has enabled us to avoid chromatic dispersion effects and to obtain ultrahigh resolution OCT images of biological samples. We achieved an axial resolution of 2 μm in air with 87 dB dynamic range at a center wavelength around 1300 nm.
