Abstract

Standard Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) suffers from the presence of autocorrelation terms that obscure the object information and degrade the sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio. By exploiting the phase information of the recorded interferograms, it is possible to remove those autocorrelation terms and to double the measurement range. However, standard phase-retrieval algorithms need three to five interferograms. We present a novel technique that shows all the features of complex FDOCT with only two recorded interferograms.
