Abstract

We report on a new detection scheme for Fourier domain optical coherence microscopy that exhibits high transverse resolution along an axially extended focal range. Nearly constant transverse resolution of 1.5μm along a focal range of 200μm is experimentally verified with a maximum sensitivity of 105dB. A broad-bandwidth Ti:sapphire laser allowed for an axial resolution of 3μm in air.
