Abstract: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has developed extensively over the last 23 years. This paper reviews some of the imaging techniques based on OCT with particular reference to the trade-offs between lateral and axial resolution, working distance, imaging depth, acquisition speed (enabling real time observation and 3D imaging), imaged area/volume, contrast enhancement – including velocity measurement, and system complexity – including detectors, light sources and the optical path. The majority of applications of OCT are biomedical, especially ophthalmology, endoscopy and intravascular imaging. However, some industrial applications are emerging particularly for non-destructive testing and quality control, such as in the production of MEMS devices, or the non-destructive detection of sub-surface strain fields in injected moulded polymer parts.
