Abstract

We demonstrate phase imaging that reduces the common phase noise in full-field optical coherence microscopy using a short multimode fiber (SMMF) probe. Using a cover glass, phase images of the SMMF and sample surfaces were measured simultaneously. Subtracting the phase of the SMMF surface as a reference, the phase drifts in the sample region are reduced. The axial and lateral resolutions were 2.3 µm and $\lt 4.4\;\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$, respectively. The standard deviation of the time variation in the phase decreased from 14.3 deg to 9.2 deg and was reduced by 64% when in contact with the polymer film at the SMMF. In quantitative evaluations, the measured phases closely correspond to the phases changed by a piezoelectric device.
