    20 mW, 70 nm bandwidth ASE fibre optic source at 1060 nm wavelength region for optical coherence tomography
    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging at 1060 nm region proved to be a successful alternative in ophthalmology not only for resolving intraretinal layers, but also for enabling sufficient penetration to monitor the sub-retinal vasculature in the choroids when compared to most commonly used OCT imaging systems at 800 nm region. To encourage further clinical research at this particular wavelength, we have developed a compact fiber optic source based on amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) centered at ~1060 nm with ~70 nm spectral bandwidth at full-width half maximum (FWHM) and output power >20 mW. Our approach is based on a combination of ...
