Extended-Range Optical Low-Coherence Reflectometry Using a Recirculating Delay Technique
Baney, Doug M.; Sorin, Wayne V.
Abstract: We propose a novel technique allowing for a substantial increase in the distance measurement range for optical low-coherence reflectometry. By introducing a recirculating delay into the interferometer reference path, we achieve a one hundred times increase in range compared to previous optical low-coherence reflectometry techniques. At this extended range, a reflection sensitivity greater than -80 dB is demonstrated at a probe wavelength of 1.55 micron.
