Abstract-An optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technology
in which an amplitude and a phase of electromagnetic wave undergone backscattering are
used to extract properties and microstructure of a material medium such as biological
tissues by providing a cross-sectional view of the sample being scanned. In an OCT
experiment, the precise control of laser source plays crucial role in obtaining accurate
data. Reflecting this point, the use of high-tech hardware and control software ranging
from voltage controlled laser generator to the high speed digitizer which maintains a
consistent and precise triggering of rapidly evolving information-bearing signal are
pervasive and thus, integral part of OCT experiment.
