Abstract

We report a compact, high-power, fiber-based source for ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) near 1μm. The practical source is based on a short-pulse, ytterbium-doped fiber laser and on generation of a continuum spectrum in a photonic crystal fiber. The broadband emission has an average power of 140mW and offers an axial resolution of 2.1μm in air (<1.6μm in biological tissue). The generation of a broad bandwidth is robust and efficient. We demonstrate ultrahigh-resolution, time-domain OCT imaging of in vitro and in vivo biological tissues.
