Abstract
We describe the operational characteristics of an ultrabroadband light source using a fiber Raman laser based on the stimulated Raman scattering in a single-mode optical fiber pumped by a self Q-switched Ti:sapphire laser for application in optical coherence tomography. Ultrabroadband output light covering the range from 770 to 1650 nm was obtained using a 500-m-long single-mode P-doped SiO2 optical fiber pumped by the Ti:sapphire laser with a spectral width of 13nm. When a white-light Michelson interferometer was constructed using the fiber Raman laser as a light source, a longitudinal spatial resolution of 1.7 μm was achieved. © 2006 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.
