ABSTRACT. We demonstrate a 1050-nm spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system with a 12 mm imaging depth in air, a 120 kHz A-scan rate and a 10 μm axial resolution for anterior-segment imaging of human eye, in which a new prototype InGaAs linescan camera with 2048 active-pixel photodiodes is employed to record OCT spectral interferograms in parallel. Combined with the full-range complex technique, we show that the system delivers comparable imaging performance to that of a swept-source OCT with similar system specifications.
