Wedescribeaninnovativeopticallycomputedopticalcoherence tomography (OC-OCT) technology. The OC-OCT system performs depth resolved imaging by computing the Fourier transform of the interferometric spectra optically. The OC-OCT system modulates the interferometric spectra with Fourier basis function projected to a spatial light modulator and detects the modulated signal without spectral discrimination. The novel, to the best of our knowledge, optical computation strategy enables volumetric OCT imaging without performing mechanical scanning and without the need for Fourier transform in a computer.
