    2. SOI lens structure for medical probe

      SOI lens structure for medical probe

      An optical probe for emitting and/or receiving light within a body comprises an optical fiber that transmits and/or receives an optical signal, a silicon optical bench including a fiber groove running longitudinally that holds an optical fiber termination of the optical fiber and a reflecting surface that optically couples an endface of the optical fiber termination to a lateral side of the optical bench. The fiber groove is fabricated using silicon anisotropic etching techniques. Some examples use a housing around the optical bench that is fabricated using LIGA or other electroforming technology. A method for a forming lens ...

    3. Filtered ASE swept source for OCT medical imaging

      Filtered ASE swept source for OCT medical imaging

      An integrated swept wavelength optical source uses a filtered ASE signal with an optical amplifier and tracking filter. This source comprises a micro optical bench, a source for generating broadband light, a first tunable Fabry Perot filter, installed on the bench, for spectrally filtering the broadband light from the broadband source to generate a narrowband tunable signal, an amplifier, installed on the bench, for amplifying the tunable signal, and a second tunable Fabry Perot filter, installed on the bench, for spectrally filtering the amplified tunable signal from the amplifier. A self-tracking arrangement is also possible where a single tunable filter ...

      Integrated dual swept source for OCT medical imaging

      An optical coherence analysis system comprising: a first swept source that generates a first optical signal that is tuned over a first spectral scan band, a second swept source that generates a second optical signal that is tuned over a second spectral scan band, a combiner for combining the first optical signal and the second optical signal to form a combined optical signal, an interferometer for dividing the combined optical signal between a reference arm leading to a reference reflector and a sample arm leading to a sample, and a detector system for detecting an interference signal generated from the ...

    5. Method and system for avoiding package induced failure in swept semiconductor source

      Method and system for avoiding package induced failure in swept semiconductor source

      Dry oxygen, dry air, or other gases such as ozone are hermetically sealed within the package of the external cavity laser or ASE swept source to avoid packaging-induced failure or PIF. PIF due to hydrocarbon breakdown at optical interfaces with high power densities is believed to occur at the SLED and/or SOA facets as well as the tunable Fabry-Perot reflector/filter elements and/or output fiber. Because the laser is an external cavity tunable laser and the configuration of the ASE swept sources, the power output can be low while the internal power at surfaces can be high leading ...

  2. About Volcano Corporation

    Volcano Corporation

    Volcano Corporation. Cardiology Systems. Volcano Corporation develops, manufactures and commercializes a broad suite of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and OCT (through purchase of CardioSpectra) and functional measurement (FM) products designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of vascular and structural heart diseases. As of September 30, 2007, we had more than 2,900 IVUS and FM consoles installed worldwide.  Our IVUS products consist of consoles that can be integrated directly into virtually any modern cath lab. In addition, we offer both phased array and rotational single-use IVUS imaging catheters and advanced functionality options such as VH™ IVUS tissue characterization. Our IVUS offerings are used by clinicians to produce a cross-sectional image of the artery and provide information on the composition and density of plaque or lesions caused by the accumulation of fat-laden cells in the inner lining of the artery. Our FM products include consoles and single-use pressure and flow guide wires. These offerings are used to gauge the impact of arterial plaque on blood flow and pressure.
