    2. Feature Of The Week 9/11/11: Researchers at University of Florida Probe Into Miniature MEMs for OCT Imaging

      Feature Of The Week 9/11/11: Researchers at University of Florida Probe Into Miniature MEMs for OCT Imaging
      Researchers at the University of Florida, let by Dr. Huikai Xie, have been active for many years in developing advanced optical scanning technology using MEMS technology. Such technology is important for OCT and other optical imaging modalities. Below is a summary of some of their recent work.Endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is very useful since it can replace risky, painful and time-consuming biopsy. However Endoscopic OCT is also ...

    3. Miniature endoscopic optical coherence tomography probe employing a two-axis microelectromechanical scanning mirror with through-silicon vias

      Miniature endoscopic optical coherence tomography probe employing a two-axis microelectromechanical scanning mirror with through-silicon vias
      We present the design and experimental results of a new MEMS-based endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) probe. The uniqueness of this miniature OCT imaging probe is a two-axis MEMS mirror with through-silicon vias (TSVs) for interconnecting. The TSV interconnection enables ultracompact probe design, successfully reducing the probe size to only 2.6 mm in diameter. The MEMS mirror is actuated by an electrothermal actuator that is capable of scanning ±16 ...

    4. 3D In Vivo optical coherence tomography based on a low-voltage, large-scan-range 2D MEMS mirror

      3D In Vivo optical coherence tomography based on a low-voltage, large-scan-range 2D MEMS mirror
      3D in vivo optical imaging on a mouse has been obtained using a 2D MEMS mirror for lateral scanning in a time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. The MEMS mirror aperture size is 1 × 1 mm2, and the device footprint is 2 × 2 mm2. The MEMS mirror scans ± 30° optical angles about both x and y-axis at only 5.5V DC voltage. An endoscopic probe with an outer diameter of ...

  2. About WiOptix

    WiOptix

    WOI is a spin-off from University of Florida, located at Gainesville, FL. It was founded in 2008 by Dr. Huikai Xie, the principal inventor of large-scan-range MEMS mirrors/lenses and miniature optical imaging probes for confocal imaging, OCT, full-field OCT and nonlinear optical imaging. With the innovation and superiority in MEMS scanning optical devices, WOI emerged as the first company in the world to bring MEMS to conventional endoscopy technology and pioneers a new paradigm for medical imaging.
