General Experimental Techniques


A setup for visualizing the internal structure of media, which partially scatter radiation, using the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) method is described. The special complex of electron interface systems, ensuring the operating speed of the spectral domain OCT system at a level of 10000 A-scans (longitudinal scans along the depth) per second, high dynamic imaging range, and complete suppression of coherent noise peculiar to the spectral method has been designed to eliminate artifacts characteristic of this method.
