    Chip-based frequency combs sources for optical coherence tomography

    The Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a powerful interferometric imaging technique widely used in medical fields such as ophthalmology, cardiology and dermatology, for which footprint and cost are becoming increasingly important. Here we present a platform for miniaturized sources for OCT based on chip-scale lithographically defined microresonators. We show that the proposed platform is compatible with standard commercial spectral domain (SD) OCT systems and enable imaging of human tissue with an image quality comparable to the one achieved with tabletop commercial sources. This platform provides a path towards fully integrated OCT systems
