Abstract

A novel optical coherence tomography (OCT) system is presented that combines Fourier-domain OCT with incoherent nonlinear time gating. By processing backscattered light in the optical domain, the user can select a restricted depth field of view for improved contrast and acquisition speed. This technique has the additional advantage that imaging is done in the infrared (1280nm) but is detected in the visible (504nm).
