Angular high-speed massively-parallel detection SD-OCT for speckle
We demonstrate speckle reduction
based on angular compounding using parallel-detection spectral-domain (SD)
optical coherence tomography (OCT).
two-dimensional (2D) complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera
acquired angular and spectral interference fringes (128 × 1024
pixels) simultaneously at 15000 frames/s for a single lateral point.
A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
improvement of 8 dB was achieved for imaging human skin in vivo by
averaging 121 angle-resolved OCT images.
