Abstract

We present speckle suppression and dispersion compensation for Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography based on fractional Fourier transforms of a single A scan. A 1.54-fold reduction in speckle contrast was achieved with group velocity dispersion compensation. The method is demonstrated on biological samples using a swept source configuration at 1310 nm and a spectral-domain system at 840 nm.
