100 kHz axial scan rate swept-wavelength OCT using sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector lasers
Fast wavelength tunable sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) lasers are used to generate fast, linear, continuous wavelength sweeps. High resolution wavelength sweeps in excess of 45 nm are demonstrated at a 100 kHz repetition rate. The front mirror, back mirror and phase segment tun ... [Proc.
