abstract

The spectral shape of a light source in optical coherence tomography imaging is of prime importance because it determines resolution and quality of the image. Spectra and axial point spread function of photonic crystal fiber light source TB-1550 from Menlosystems GmbH before and after optical spectral shaping are presented. Low-pass and high-pass filters are simulated to shape the irregularities in light spectra of the source. Full-spectrum shaping results with use of spectral processor are calculated. Results show that shaping of a light source improves meaningly axial resolution and inhibits sidelobes of the point spread function.
