Abstract

We present differential phase-contrast optical-coherence tomography (DPC-OCT) with two transversally separated probing beams to sense phase gradients in various directions by employing a rotatable Wollaston prism. In combination with a two-dimensional mathematical-reconstruction algorithm based on a regularized shape from shading method, accurate quantitative phase maps can be determined from a set of two orthogonal en-face DPC-OCT images, as exemplified on various technical samples.
