      Dynamic compensation of path length difference in optical coherence tomography by an automatic temperature control system of optical fiber
      Optical fiber is widely used in optical coherence tomography (OCT) to propagate light precisely with low attenuation and low dispersion. However, the total optical path length within the optical fiber varies in accordance with changes of the temperature. This leads changes in the total optical travel path of the interfering signals and results in shifting of OCT image position to an unintended depth pixel value. In this paper, we presented ...

    12. Optical Interferometric Fringe Pattern-Incorporated Spectrum Calibration Technique for Enhanced Sensitivity of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical Interferometric Fringe Pattern-Incorporated Spectrum Calibration Technique for Enhanced Sensitivity of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Depth-visualizing sensitivity can be degraded due to imperfect optical alignment and non-equidistant distribution of optical signals in the pixel array, which requires a measurement of the re-sampling process. To enhance this depth-visualizing sensitivity, reference and sample arm-channeled spectra corresponding to different depths using mirrors were obtained to calibrate the spectrum sampling prior to Fourier transformation. During the process, eight interferogram patterns corresponding to point spread function (PSF) signals at eight ...
