Abstract : Full-field optical coherence microscopy (FFOCM) is an optical technique, based on low-coherence interference microscopy, for tomographic imaging of semi-transparent samples with micrometer-scale spatial resolution. The differences in refractive index between the sample and the immersion medium of the microscope objectives may degrade the FFOCM image quality because of focus defect and optical dispersion mismatch. These phenomena and their consequences are discussed in this theoretical paper. Experimental methods that have been implemented in FFOCM to minimize the adverse effects of these phenomena are summarized and compared.
