|Title:||Design and optimization of a spectrometer for Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography|
Carla Carmelo Rosa
|Abstract:||There are several factors such as the chosen optical source, central wavelength, spectral bandwidth, spectrometer optical components and the detector specifications that affect the overall performance of a spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging system. Among these factors a good design and implementation of the spectrometer is of paramount importance as it directly affects the system resolution, sensitivity fall-off, maximum imaging depth, SNR and in general the system performance. This study demonstrates the design steps and some considerations during the design of a spectrometer. The imaging performance of this design is assessed. The obtained experimental results prove an improvement of the overall performance of the common path SD-OCT imaging system and agree with the expected outcome from the design stage.|
