Abstract

Jones matrix imaging of biological samples by a polarization-sensitive Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography has been demonstrated using a two-dimensional CCD camera to obtain two spectra corresponding to the orthogonal polarization components simultaneously.

The measurement results of a quarter-wave plate are compared between the two incident polarization sets, H-V linear and R-L circular polarization. Jones matrix imaging of the bovine tendon is demonstrated. Measured Jones matrix images are converted to equivalent Müller matrix images. Local polarization properties are obtained by longitudinal differentiation of Jones matrix components. The layered structure of the bovine tendon and birefringence are revealed.
