Abstract

An optical coherence tomography system using a compact fiber source emitting amplified spontaneous emission at central wavelength of 1960 nm with bandwidth of 40 nm is developed to enhance the probing depth in a highly scattering material with low water content. Examples of application to paint are used to demonstrate significantly improved penetration depth in high opacity materials in the 2-μm wavelength regime.
