Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a configuration consisting of two fiberised Michelson interferometers and show that, with an optical balanced technique and suitable electronics, the signal corresponding to coherent interference in the first interferometer can be sufficiently attenuated in the channel processing the signal from the second interferometer. In this way it is possible to display simultaneous reflectograms of two different regions in the eye (e.g. cornea and retina) and infer the eye length from these measurements.
