Mirau-based line-field confocal optical coherence tomography

Abstract : Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is an imaging technique in which A-scans are acquired in parallel through line illumination with a broadband laser and line detection with a line-scan camera. B-scan imaging at high spatial resolution is achieved by dynamic focusing in a Linnik interferometer. This paper presents an LC-OCT device based on a custom-designed Mirau interferometer that o ers similar spatial resolution and detection sensitivity. The device has the advantage of being more compact and lighter. In vivo imaging of human skin with a resolution of 1.3 µm * 1.1 µm (lateral * axial) is demonstrated over a field of 0.9 mm * 0.4 mm (lateral * axial) at 12 frames per second.
