    Transmission optical coherence tomography based measurement of optical material properties

    We present transmission optical coherence tomography (transmission OCT) as a versatile tool to measure optical material properties of turbid media. The transmission OCT signal is described in detail and it is demonstrated how the group refractive index ( n g ), group velocity dispersion (GVD) and optical attenuation can be determined from this signal. We experimentally validate the refractive index properties of glasses, liquids and glucose water solutions in terms of n g and GVD. Measurements of scattering coefficients are determined using transmission OCT for suspensions of silica particles. Quantitative agreement is obtained with a dependent scattering model, both for the average ...
