Process, Arrangements And Systems For Providing Frequency Domain Imaging Of A Sample

Abstract

Exemplary apparatus, arrangement and method can be provided for obtaining information associated with an anatomical structure or sample using optical microscopy. A radiation can include first electromagnetic radiation(s) directed to an anatomical sample and at least one second electromagnetic radiation directed to a reference. A wavelength of the radiation can vary over time, and the wavelength can be shorter than approximately 1150 nm. An interference can be detected between third and forth radiations associated with the first, second and fourth radiation, respectively. At least one image corresponding to portion(s) of the sample can be generated using data associated with the interference. Source arrangement(s) can be provided which is configured to provide an electromagnetic radiation having a wavelength that varies over time. A period of a variation of the wavelength of the first electromagnetic radiation(s) can be shorter than 1 millisecond, and the wavelength can be shorter than approximately 1150 nm.
