1. Broadband light source system and method and light source combiner

    A system for generating a source of broadband light includes, in one embodiment, a plurality of light sources such as SLEDs or edge-emitting luminescent diodes (ELEDs) whose outputs are combined in at least one combiner unit. The combiner unit combines light from a plurality of light sources into a single mode output beam. In one embodiment, the single mode output beam is the input beam to an interferometer for optical coherence tomography. In another embodiment, a time-gain compensation (TGC) unit is in communication with the plurality of light sources. The TGC unit controls the plurality of light sources independently and ...
