    2. Supercontinuum light source, a system and a method of measuring

      Supercontinuum light source, a system and a method of measuring
      A supercontinuum light source comprising an intermediate supercontinuum light source and a single mode coupling unit, an optical measurement system comprising such light source, as well as a method of measuring are described. The supercontinuum light source comprises a pulse frequency multiplier to increase the repetition rate and the single mode coupling unit is arranged to dampen and shape the spectrum from the intermediate supercontinuum light source to allow measurements ...

    3. Acousto-optic tunable filter for dispersion characterization of time-domain optical coherence tomography systems

      Acousto-optic tunable filter for dispersion characterization of time-domain optical coherence tomography systems
      A broadband supercontinuum light source with an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) are used to characterize dispersion in two time-domain OCT systems, at 850 and 1300 nm. The filter is designed to sweep across two spectral ranges, which are restricted here from 800 to 900 nm and from 1200 to 1500 nm, respectively. Dispersion compensation for 850 nm was achieved with a spectral delay line. Dispersion compensation for 1300 nm was ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. Feature of the Week 05/08/2016: Complex Master Slave Interferometry

      Feature of the Week 05/08/2016: Complex Master Slave Interferometry
      A general theoretical model is developed to improve the novel Spectral Domain Interferometry method denoted as Master/Slave (MS) Interferometry. In this model, two functions, g and h are introduced to describe the modulation chirp of the channeled spectrum signal due to nonlinearities in the decoding process from wavenumber to time and due to dispersion in the interferometer. The utilization of these two functions brings two major improvements to previous ...

    6. Spectroscopic low coherence interferometry using a supercontinuum source and an ultra broadband spectrometer

      Spectroscopic low coherence interferometry using a supercontinuum source and an ultra broadband spectrometer
      Spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (SOCT) combines the imaging capability of optical coherence tomography with spectroscopic absorption information. SOCT requires a large bandwidth combined with a broadband spectrometer, due to the processing of the measured data, which includes dividing the spectrum in spectral bands. Both, spectral and axial resolution of SOCT depend on the spectral width of each window. A supercontinuum source with its broad spectrum allows a sufficient number of ...

    7. Broadband master-slave interferometry using a super-continuum source

      Broadband master-slave interferometry using a super-continuum source
      In this report we applied the principle of Master-Slave Interferometry (MSI) to an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) employing a Super-Continuum (SC) light source. A-scans and B-scan images of biological and non-biological sample are presented in order to demonstrate similar performance with the images obtained with the resampled Fourier Transform (FT) based OCT technique. Dispersion tolerance of MSI method is demonstrated as a constant axial resolution over the depth range even ...

    8. High resolution OCT system From NKT Photonics

      High resolution OCT system From NKT Photonics
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-destructive analysis technique that can provide detailed information on refractive index variations and scattering on a micrometer scale for partly transmitting materials. Powered by our broadband SuperK EXTREME OCT laser in combination with the Thorlabs Ganymede OCT engine, the system provides an ultra high axial resolution of 1.2m in tissue. With a lateral resolution down to 2.5m, the system is a versatile ...

    9. Noise characterization of supercontinuum sources for low-coherence interferometry applications

      Noise characterization of supercontinuum sources for low-coherence interferometry applications
      We examine the noise properties of supercontinuum light sources when used in low-coherence interferometry applications. The first application is a multiple-scattering low-coherence interferometry (ms2/LCI) system, where high power and long image acquisition times are required to image deep into tissue. For this system, we compare the noise characteristics of two supercontinuum sources from different suppliers. Both sources have long-term drift that limits the amount of time over which signal ...
