    OCT aims for industrial application
    The speed, precision, and cost benefits of optical coherence tomography are beginning to attract the interest of industrial end users. For detailed subsurface imaging of small, semiopaque 2-D surface areas or 3-D structures, OCT is just the thing. When optical coherence tomography (OCT) was introduced in the early 1990s, it was immediately recognized for its ability to produce high-resolution, depth-resolved imagery of biological tissue. Its impact on ophthalmology is evident in a recent article published by Ocular Surgery News. Writes author Richard Lindstrom, “Every day in clinical practice around the world, optical coherence tomography is making a significant contribution to ...

    1. OCT will be suitable for many niche applications, which we have only just begun to uncover.
    2. It is really great when the manufacturer sees the system.
    3. With high-speed OCT these defects can be detected during the manufacturing process.
    4. However, the main barrier to overcome is simply to build awareness of OCT and understanding of the benefits and applications.
    5. In particular, they are not really designed to quickly produce metrology measurements.
    6. We would like to move the display routine to a graphics card to reduce the CPU load and be able to display in parallel to acquisition and processing.
    7. Benefits from older concepts, which need re-evaluation with respect to the performance and availability of novel photonics components and devices can be expected.
