    Time-encoded mid-infrared Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

    In this contribution, we report on a technically simple approach to high-resolution and sensitive spectral-domain OCT imaging in the mid-infrared range. The proposed OCT system employs an InF 3 supercontinuum source; for detection, a time-encoded spectrometer based on a single InAsSb point detector is used. The developed spectrometer enables structural imaging in the spectral range from around 3140 nm to 4190 nm with a characterised sensitivity above 80 dB and an axial resolution below 8 μm. The capabilities of the system are exhibited for imaging of porous ceramic samples and transition-stage green parts fabricated using an emerging method of lithography-based ...
