    2. Algorithm for Excitation Optimization of Fabry-Perot Filters Used in Swept Sources

      Algorithm for Excitation Optimization of Fabry-Perot Filters Used in Swept Sources
      We investigate the improvement in the nonlinearity of a conventional wavelength swept laser source on the basis of a fiber FabryProt tunable filter using a well-established optimization method, simulated annealing (SA). The signal driving the filter is constructed from many short ramps of different slopes that are interconnected. The values of the slopes are optimized through the SA algorithm to achieve maximum amplitude for the Fourier transformed peaks of the ...

    3. Broadband neodymium-ytterbium-silica doped amplified spontaneous emission optical fiber source by spectral filtered reinjected signals

      Broadband neodymium-ytterbium-silica doped amplified spontaneous emission optical fiber source by spectral filtered reinjected signals
      The present invention provides an amplified spontaneous emission fiber optic source having high optical power (>20 mW) and a spectral broadband emission (>70 nm) centered near a wavelength of 1060 nm. In an embodiment of the invention, the fiber source comprises a combination of Yb-doped and Nd-doped silica fibers in a dual-pumping configuration. The Yb-doped optical fiber has a peak absorption coefficient of 350 dB/nm at 977 nm band ...

    4. Dual excitation waveform Fabry-Perot tunable filters used in swept sources

      Dual excitation waveform Fabry-Perot tunable filters used in swept sources
      We report experimental evidence of a novel method to quench the resonances of a Fabry-Perot tunable filter typically used as a wavelength selective element in swept source OCT systems. The method is based on applying a non-sinusoidal, synthesized waveform to the tunable filter, waveform that can be found experimentally in a few iteration steps. A significant improvement in the OCT image quality has been obtained without any software recalibration method.

    6. Combined Neodymium–Ytterbium-Doped ASE Fiber-Optic Source for Optical Coherence Tomography Applications

      Combined Neodymium–Ytterbium-Doped ASE Fiber-Optic Source for Optical Coherence Tomography Applications
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging at the 1060-nm region proved to be a successful alternative in ophthalmology not only for resolving intraretinal layers, but also for enabling sufficient penetration to monitor the subretinal vasculature in the choroid when compared to most commonly used OCT imaging systems at the 800-nm region. To encourage further clinical research at this particular wavelength, we have developed a compact fiber-optic source based on amplified spontaneous ...
