1. Wavelength-tunable light generator and optical coherence tomography device

    The present invention provides an OCT technique that permits tomographic observation of a biological body parts that is difficult to restrain and also provides a tomographic observation technique for the observation of a constrainable part that does not require constraint and remove the burden from biological body. A wavelength-tunable light generator (wavelength-tunable light source) is employed as the light source of the optical coherence tomography device. The wavelength-tunable light generator has a wave number tunable range width of at least 4.7.times.10.sup.-2 .mu.m.sup.-1 and an emitted-light frequency width of no more than 13 ...
