    Thermal light optical coherence tomography for transmissive objects

    We report an experimental demonstration of optical coherence tomography for transmissive objects utilizing second-order correlation ghost imaging with thermal light. To evaluate the longitudinal resolution of our system, the concept of the imaging longitudinal coherence length is introduced, which is more accurate for judging the image quality of ghost imaging with unequal optical paths than the conventional point-to-point longitudinal coherence length. Our work should help clarify our understanding of the longitudinal coherence of thermal light, as well as provide a scheme for performing optical coherence tomography on objects that are not highly reflective
