A spectral-domain optical coherence tomograph was constructed within the frame of the Michelson interferometer by using a superluminescent diode as a light source. A spectrometer was used as the photodetector to measure the spectral intensity distribution. We describe an optimized system and digital signal processing for obtaining images of the best quality. We also present experimental results with a cover glass.
