We present the use of sub-micron resolution optical coherence tomography (SMR SD-OCT) in volumetric
characterization of ink- jet printed color filters, aimed for electronic paper display (EPD). The device used in the study is based on supercontinuum light source, Michelson interferometer centered at 600 nm and employs 400-800 nm spectral region. Spectra are acquired at a continuous rate of 140,000 per second. Color filter array of 143 μm x 141 μm sized and 6 rtm deep ink pools was studied. The volumetric OCT reconstruction was done using the experimental SMR SD-OCT device and a commercial SD-OCT imaging system. The ink layer in the pools was estimated to be 2μm thin. The optical profilometer was used for reference measurements.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
