Abstract

We report a novel scheme to optimize the focusing condition for real-time, swept-source optical coherence microscopy. The axial and lateral behaviors of four-zone binary-phase spatial filters are presented numerically. A nearly constant axial intensity distribution along an extended depth of focus of 1.5mm and a lateral resolution of 5μm are experimentally verified. The A-line scan rate is up to 16kHz, yielding a frame rate of 25Hz and 640 lines per image.
