Optical Coherence Tomography: High Resolution Imaging Using Echoes of Light

James G. Fujimoto, Wolfgang Drexler, Uwe Morgner, Franz Kartner, and Erich Ippen

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a fundamentally new type of optical imaging modality that performs high-resolution, cross-sectional tomographic imaging of the internal microstructure in materials and biological systems, by measuring the echo time delay and magnitude of backscattered light.
