Single camera spectral domain polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography based on orthogonal channels by time divided detection
We demonstrate a simple polarization-sensitive spectral-domain optical coherence tomography implement by using a single line-scan camera based on time divided detection. Two light shutters were placed on the dual assembly reference arm that provides a divided detection between the orthogonal vertical and horizontal polarized lights. The relative reflectivity and the retardance information were available by recombining the two orthogonal polarization images. This system can be employed to implement high speed polarization-sensitive OCT images.
