    1. Self-aligned micro-optic integrated photonic platform

      Self-aligned micro-optic integrated photonic platform

      In this work, we present the fabrication technology of a monolithically integrated photonic platform combining key components for optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, thereby including a photonic interferometer, a collimating lens, and a 45° reflecting mirror that directs the light from the interferometer to the collimator. The proposed integration process simplifies the fabrication of an interferometric system and inherently overcomes the complexity of costly alignment procedures while complying with the necessarily stringent optical constraints. Fabricated waveguide characterization shows total optical losses as low as 3 dB, and less than 1 dB of additional loss due to the Si 45° mirror ...

      Optical coherence tomography probe for crossing coronary occlusions

      Systems and methods for controlling a guide with the aid of optical coherence tomography (OCT) data are described. A guide wire includes at least one optical fiber, a flexible substrate, and one or more optical elements. The at least one optical fiber transmits a source beam of radiation. The flexible substrate includes a plurality of waveguides. At least one of the plurality of waveguides transmits one or more beams of radiation away from the guide wire, and at least one of the plurality of waveguides receives one or more beams of scattered radiation that have been reflected or scattered from ...

    3. Distributed delay-line for low-coherence interferometry

      Distributed delay-line for low-coherence interferometry

      A Time Domain Optical Coherence Tomography system using a modulation scheme multiplexes the scanning range of the delay line into different spectral bands. Such a modulation scheme may allow for power consumption reduction compared with a single delay line element since the same modulation pattern is being used for several channels. In an example, the optical coherence tomography system may include a plurality of stages, each stage having a group delay element. The distinct group delays may be introduced to scan a sample with distinct electrical frequency bands at distinct axial scanning depth ranges.

      Miniaturized OCT package and assembly thereof

      A chip package includes a housing, one or more electrical connections coupled to an exterior of the housing, a photonic integrated circuit, and a scanning unit. Both the photonic integrated circuit and the scanning unit are disposed within the housing. The photonic integrated circuit has at least one waveguide designed to guide a beam of light. The scanning unit is designed to laterally scan the beam of light across a focal plane outside of the housing. The scanning unit is aligned with the photonic integrated circuit such that the beam of light is coupled between the photonic integrated circuit and ...

    5. Optical beam scanner

      Optical beam scanner

      A scanning device is presented having a substrate with a first surface and an opposite, parallel second surface. A region of the substrate includes the first surface and the opposite parallel second surface, and is defined via an etching process through a thickness of the substrate, where the region remains attached to the substrate via one or more hinges. A waveguide is patterned over the first surface of the region and guides a beam of radiation along a length of the waveguide. The scanning device includes a facet located on the first surface of the region. The facet is designed ...

      Integrated delay line for optical coherence tomography

      A system includes a waveguide that guides a beam of radiation, a variable delay unit, and a polarization-dependent modulating unit. The variable delay unit modulates the refractive index in a region, and the waveguide makes a plurality of passes through the region. The polarization-dependent element compensates for birefringence associated with the beam of radiation and includes a polarization splitter and a plurality of modulating elements. The polarization splitter has a first arm and a second arm that each include modulation segments. The beam of radiation is split between the first arm and the second arm and recombined after traversing the ...

    7. Electro-optical silicon-based phase modulator with null residual amplitude modulation

      Electro-optical silicon-based phase modulator with null residual amplitude modulation

      Systems and methods are presented for modulating a beam of radiation, such that the modulated beam exhibits substantially null residual amplitude modulation (RAM). An electro-optical modulator is presented that includes a waveguide, a first region associated with the waveguide and a second region associated with the waveguide. The waveguide is designed to guide a beam of radiation. A first electric potential applied to the first region causes a first modulation to the beam of radiation while a second electric potential applied to the second region causes a second modulation to the beam of radiation. The first modulation combined with the ...
