    Real‐time High‐Resolution Mid‐infrared Optical Coherence Tomography

    The potential for improving the penetration depth of optical coherence tomography systems by using increasingly longer wavelength light sources has been known since the inception of the technique in the early 1990s. Nevertheless, the development of mid‐infrared optical coherence tomography has long been challenged by the maturity and fidelity of optical components in this spectral region, resulting in slow acquisition, low sensitivity, and poor axial resolution. In this work, a mid‐infrared spectral‐domain optical coherence tomography system operating at 4 µm central wavelength with an axial resolution of 8.6 µm is demonstrated. The system produces 2D cross ...
