FIG. 1.

High resolution SH-OCT experimental setup: (OBJ1-OBJ3) objectives; (SMF) single mode fiber; (M1-M2) mirrors; (BS) broadband nonpolarization beam splitter; (NLC) nonlinear crystal BBO; (PP) prism pair dispersion compensator; (DM) dichroic mirror; (DBS) dichroic beam splitter; (PD) photodiode; (BF) band-pass filter; (PMT) photomultiplier tube.

FIG. 2.

Coherence length measurements: (a) spectrum of the fundamental wave. The dashed curve is the original spectrum of the laser, and the solid curve is the spectrum of the continuum generated from the fiber; (b) spectrum of the SH wave from the nonlinear crystal; (c) coherence point spread function of the fundamental wave, showing a coherence length of ; (d) coherence point spread function of the SH wave, showing a coherence length of .
