1. System for swept source optical coherence tomography

    A swept source Optical coherence tomography system (SSOCT) comprises a vertical cavity surface-emitting laser with an integrated MEMs tunable mirror movable by electro-static deflection. The MEMs tunable VCSEL offers scan rates greater than 100 khz and tuning ranges approaching 200 nm around 1300 nm and 150 nm around 850 nm. In the preferred embodiment of this invention, a bottom mirror of the VCSEL is comprised of a Aluminum Gallium Arsenide/Aluminum Oxide DBR stack, and a movable top mirror is comprised of a TiO2/SiO2 DBR stack. A MEMs tunable VCSEL at 1300 nm is preferably pumped through the top ...
