AbstractOptical Coherence Tomography is an imaging technique for capturing three-dimensional images of weakly scattering sample1. At the core of this technique are an interferometer with low temporal coherence and an optical delay line for in depth movement of the coherent gate. The interferometeric setup has to be robust and with high signal-to-noise ratio. Fiber-optic implementation of the interferometer has the advantages of being rugged, compact and by using SM fiber yields minimal scattering into higher-order modes. On the other hand large bandwidth required for light sources cannot be accommodated by the fiber optic components usually design for a smaller bandwidth. The Michelson configuration is widely used as an interferometric platform with OCT application.
