    New approach to cross-polarized optical coherence tomography based on orthogonal arbitrarily polarized modes
    A novel cross-polarized optical coherence tomography (CP OCT) system is developed, which is based on standard isotropic single-mode fiber. We exploit the property of an arbitrary pair of orthogonal waves propagating in a singlemode fiber to maintain their orthogonality in the absence of anisotropy losses, regardless of the induced phase anisotropy. The well-known isotropic fiber based OCT scheme that commonly comprises an optical probe with a Fizeau interferometer and a compensating Michelson interferometer with Faraday mirrors is modified. We introduce an additional optical element to form the initial radiation into two mutually time-delayed and coherent waves that have strictly orthogonal ...
