An ultrabroad-bandwidth femtosecond laser technology is used to demonstrate ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) and is applied to in vivo subcellular imaging. Imaging performance is analyzed with a Kerr-lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser with double-chirped mirrors that emits sub-two-cycle pulses.
