Abstract.

An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an intensively evolving optical measurement technique, which is based on white light interferomentry. The advantages of the OCT make possible to applied it in non-contact and non-destructive examination of highly scattering materials structure. Our research has been concentrated on ceramics materials examination using OCT with polarization sensitive analysis PS-OCT. In this paper we present a designed PS-OCT system setup and the experimental results of investigation the PLZT ceramics using PS-OCT system and brief discussion on PS-OCT measurement capabilities for ceramic materials investigation and local birefringence determination.
