Comment on "Optical-fiber-based Mueller optical coherence tomography"

B Hyle Park, Mark C Pierce, Johannes F de Boer
Optics Letters 2004 December 15, 29 (24): 2873-4; discussion 2875-7
We comment on the recent Letter by Jiao et al. [Opt. Lett. 28, 1206 (2003)] in which a polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography system was presented. Interrogating a sample with two orthogonal incident polarization states cannot always recover birefringence correctly. A previously presented fiber-based polarization-sensitive system was inaccurately characterized, and its method of eliminating the polarization distortion caused by single-mode optical fiber was presented earlier by Saxer et al. [Opt. Lett. 25, 1355 (2000)].
