Since its introduction, optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology has advanced dramatically in various field of both clinical and fundamental research. Full-field and Single-shot full-field OCT (FF-OCT and SS-FF-OCT) are alternative OCT concepts, which aims to improve the image acquisition speed and to simplify the optical setup of conventional point-scan OCT by realizing direct line field or full-field sample imaging onto an array or line detector such as CCD or CMOS camera. FF-OCT and SS-FF-OCT are based on bulk optics Linnik-type Michelson interferometer with relatively high numerical aperture (NA) microscopic objectives. This paper will give you an overview of the principle of various types of FF-OCT and SS-FF-OCT techniques and its associated system design concept and image reconstruction algorithms.
