    1. System and method for creating and utilizing multivariate paths for ongoing simultaneous multi-dimensional control to attain single mode sweep operation in an electromagnetic radiation source

      System and method for creating and utilizing multivariate paths for ongoing simultaneous multi-dimensional control to attain single mode sweep operation in an electromagnetic radiation source

      A method for sweeping an electromagnetic radiation source (12) to produce single mode operation having an optimized side-mode suppression ratio over a continuous range of wavelengths within a prescribed temporal profile, the electromagnetic radiation source is configured to output electromagnetic radiation at a given wavelength based upon parameters. The method includes determining a set of parameter combinations that satisfy a condition for a desired set of wavelengths and a maximum side mode suppression ratio over the range of wavelengths. The set of parameter combinations define sub-paths for transitioning from one wavelength to another wavelength. Combinations of select sub-paths provide a ...

    4. System and method for optimization of coherence length of tunable laser sources

      System and method for optimization of coherence length of tunable laser sources

      A system and method for adjusting the coherence length of a tunable laser to optimize measurements and reduce artifacts. A tuning element of the laser system modulates, adjusts, or controls parameters associate with the tunable laser, such that the output wavelength of the tunable laser is modulated or adjusted over a wavelength range within a time interval. Modulation of the parameter has the effect of increasing a linewidth of the tunable laser.

    6. System and method for improved resolution, higher scan speeds and reduced processing time in scans involving swept-wavelength interferometry

      System and method for improved resolution, higher scan speeds and reduced processing time in scans involving swept-wavelength interferometry

      A system and method for measuring an interferometric signal from a swept-wavelength interferometer by scanning a tunable laser source over two wavelength ranges, whose centers are separated substantially more than the length of wavelength ranges. The spatial resolution of the measurement is determined by the inverse of the wavelength separation between a first and second wavelength region, as well as by the wavelength range of the first and second regions. An electronically tunable laser may be utilized to produce two wavelength ranges that are widely separated in wavelength. Such a system and method has wide applications to the fields of ...
