Abstract

We propose a novel spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) equipped with a Fresnel spectrometer, which utilizes a Fresnel zone plate (FZP) as both dispersion and focusing optics and thus spreads the spectral interferogram evenly in wavenumber domain because of the proportional relation between the focal length of the FZP and the wavenumber. With no need of the conversion calculation from wavelength to wavenumber in conventional SD-OCT, this new design is favorable for fast imaging with high resolution. As only a FZP and CCD are used, the Fresnel spectrometer is simple and compact. It is experimentally shown that its performance is as good as that of numerical interpolation in conventional SD-OCT. Imaging of bio-tissue by Fresnel SD-OCT is also demonstrated.
