The real-time dispersion compensation in scanning interferometry was discussed. The static grating tilt in a scanning frequency-domain optical delay line was shown to produce dispersion that was linearly proportional to scan position. It was found that this device has application in scanning interferometry in general and in optical coherence tomography (OCT) in particular.
