Abstract

In this study, a “time domain” system based on a partial coherence interferometry method is presented. The classic technique of varying the reference arm using a linear motor is replaced by the use of a rotating glass cube. The theoretical definition of the variation of the optical path length and first measurements in a human model eye and a real human eye are presented.

Keywords: coherence length; glass cube; human eye; measuring depth; model eye
