Abstract

We report on a new detection scheme for Fourier domain optical coherence microscopy that exhibits high transverse resolution along an axially extended focal range. Nearly constant transverse resolution of approximately 1.5 microm along a focal range of 200 microm is experimentally verified with a maximum sensitivity of 105 dB. A broad-bandwidth Ti:sapphire laser allowed for an axial resolution of 3 microm in air.
