High-resolution Optical Coherence Tomography Over a Large Depth Range with an Axicon Lens

In optical coherence tomography, axial and lateral resolutions are determined by the source coherence length
and the numerical aperture of the sampling lens, respectively. Whereas axial resolution can be improved
by use of a broadband light source, there is a trade-off between lateral resolution and focusing depth when
conventional optical elements are used. We report on the incorporation of an axicon lens into the sample
arm of an interferometer to overcome this limitation. Using an axicon lens with a top angle of 160, we
maintained 10-m or better lateral resolution over a focusing depth of at least 6 mm. In addition to having
high lateral resolution, the focusing spot has an intensity that is approximately constant over a greater depth
range than when a conventional lens is used.
