Abstract

We demonstrate a high-speed and wide-tuning-range swept laser for optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. The repetition rate of the laser is twice the speed of the polygon filter and is achieved by using two delay fibers in a Fox-Smith cavity. The performance of the laser is the following: a scanning range of 110nm centered at 1310nm, and the output power of 10mw at a 102.2 kHz sweeping rate.
