We demonstrate ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) using continuum generation in an air–silica microstructure fiber as a low-coherence light source. A broadband OCT system was developed and imaging was performed with a bandwidth of 370 nm at a center wavelength. Longitudinal resolutions of in air and in tissue were achieved. Ultrahigh-resolution imaging in biological tissuein vivo was demonstrated.
