In this paper, we extend the master slave (MS) method, so far applied to the modulus of the spectra acquired in spectral domain interferometry, to processing complex spectra. We present the algorithm of complex master slave interferometry (CMSI) method and illustrate the importance of phase processing for signal stability and strength. We demonstrate better stability of the signal driving a direct en-face OCT image by processing both real part and imaginary part of the CMS signal. Then we show that by processing the phase, novel avenues can be opened for the master slave method. A first avenue detailed here is that of dispersion measurements.
