2007 Optics Letters  
We present a novel needle-based device for the measurement of refractive index and scattering using lowcoherence interferometry.  ...  Coupled to the sample arm of an optical coherence tomography system, the device detects the scattering response of, and optical path length through, a sample residing in a fixed-width channel.  ...  The RI error bars are due to beam position and sample width measurement uncertainties and the reflector position error bars indicate the standard deviation.  ...
