Simultaneous multiple-depths en-face optical coherence tomography using multiple signal excitation of acousto-optic deflectors.
Zurauskas M., Rogers J., Podoleanu AG.
We present a novel low-coherence interferometer configuration, equipped with acousto-optic deflectors that can be used to simultaneously acquire up to eight time domain optical coherence tomography en-face images. The capabilities of the configuration are evaluated in terms of depth resolution, signal to noise ratio and crosstalk. Then the configuration is employed to demonstrate simultaneous en-face optical coherence tomography imaging at five different depths in a specimen of armadillidium vulgare.
