    Polymer microlens fiber probe for common path optical coherence tomography

    We demonstrate a compact all-fiber probe for a common path optical coherence tomography (CPOCT) system. By forming a focusing lens directly on the tip of an optical fiber, a compact fiber probe could be constructed. The microlens is produced by forming a droplet with UV-curing adhesive on the cleaved tip of multimode fiber. It fulfills two functions acting as both the reference plane and the imaging lens. To simultaneously achieve a relative long working distance and a good lateral resolution, we employed a large core size multimode fiber. A working distance of 280μm, and a transverse resolution of 14μm were ...
