Imaging techniques based on light provide access to the microstructure of samples. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a three-dimensional approach based on low-coherent light and performs rapid imaging with micrometer scale resolution. Over the last 2.5 decades, OCT has emerged as a versatile technique and has become a standard diagnostic method in clinical routine. Similar to standard microscopy, the contrast of OCT can be enhanced by adding polarization sensitivity to the technique. Polarization sensitive OCT improves the visualization of sample structures and enables the quantitative assessment of intrinsic polarization characteristics such as birefringence and depolarization.
