Title: Imaging of Multi-Fiber, Micro-Mechanical Testing Specimens Using Optical Coherence Tomography
Published: February 01, 2001
Abstract: In this initial work, we interfaced a micro-mechanical testing stage with the optical coherence tomography (OCT) instrument. We then demonstrated the feasibility of this approach by comparing OCT images of single and multi-fiber sample to optical microscopy images for resolution and sampling repeatability evaluation. Then, we collected a volumetric image set of a single fiber sample at 0% and 2.5% strain and compared the fiber break image data to data collected on the same sample with conventional video microscopy.
