    2. Dependence on fiber Fabry-Pérot tunable filter characteristics in an all-fiber swept-wavelength laser for use in an optical coherence tomography system

      Dependence on fiber Fabry-Pérot tunable filter characteristics in an all-fiber swept-wavelength laser for use in an optical coherence tomography system
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a useful and common diagnostic tool within the field of ophthalmology. Although presently a commercial technology, research continues in improving image quality and applying the imaging method to other tissue types. Swept-wavelength lasers based upon fiber ring cavities containing fiber Fabry-Perot tunable filters (FFP-TF), as an intracavity element, provide swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) systems with a robust and scalable platform. The FFP-TF can ...

    3. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

    6. Broadband Fourier-domain mode-locked lasers

      Broadband Fourier-domain mode-locked lasers
      Abstract  Broadband, high-speed wavelength-swept lasers can substantially enhance applications in optical coherence tomography, chemical spectroscopy, and fiber-optic sensing. We report the demonstration of Fourier-domain mode-lock lasers operating at about 90 kHz effective sweep rate over a 158 nm sweep range using a single-band design and over a 284 nm sweep range across the 1.3 μm to 1.5 μm wavelength spectrum using a unique broadband design. A novel dual-detection ...

    7. Fourier domain mode-locked swept source
 at 1050 nm based on a tapered amplifier

      Fourier domain mode-locked swept source
 at 1050 nm based on a tapered amplifier
      While swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the 1050 nm range is promising for retinal imaging, there are certain challenges. Conventional semiconductor gain media have limited output power, and the performance of high-speed Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) lasers suffers from chromatic dispersion in standard optical fiber. We developed a novel light source with a tapered amplifier as gain medium, and investigated the FDML performance comparing two fiber delay lines ...

    8. Dual detection full range frequency domain optical coherence tomography

      Dual detection full range frequency domain optical coherence tomography
      It has been shown that frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) systems achieve higher sensitivities compared to time domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems. However, the obscure object structure due to the mirror image generated by the Fourier transform is one of the remaining issues in the FD-OCT. We designed and developed what we believe to be a novel full range FD-OCT system that we refer to as the dual ...

    10. Flexible miniature compound lens design for high-resolution optical coherence tomography balloon imaging catheter

      We report on a new optics design for an optical coherence tomography (OCT) balloon imaging catheter. The design involves a miniature compound gradient-index (GRIN) rod lens, which consists of a fiber optic mode-field reducer and relay rod lenses to achieve predictable high lateral resolution at a desired large working distance. The compound lens design significantly simplifies the engineering process for an OCT catheter and enables 3-D full circumferential cross sectional ...
