A variation on the standard time domain optical coherence tomography (TDOCT) system is presented. Using an inexpensive piezoelectric stack to modulate the reference mirror position, the amplitude and phase of the sample reflection is determined without scanning. With the primary scan in the transverse direction, en face and B-scan OCT images can be readily produced with phase information. This project plans to use the dynamic phase information to add an extra level of contrast to the images, based on the motion of the scatterers.
