Abstract

We present a novel low-coherence interferometer configuration, equipped in each arm with an adjustable optical path length ring. By compensating for the losses in the rings using semiconductor optical amplifiers, interference of low-coherence light after traversing the two rings 18 times is obtained. This configuration is employed to demonstrate simultaneous en face optical coherence tomography imaging at five different depths in a Drosophila melanogaster fly. © 2010 Optical Society of America.
