Ultra broadband coherent light source for optical coherence tomography applications from Femtolasers

July 7, 2009
Integral OCT is the third generation of Femtolasers' (Vienna, Austria) compact ultra broadband coherent light source for applications including ultra high-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT), imaging of individual cells and sub-cellular structures, ultra high-speed 3D OCT, spectroscopic OCT, polarization-sensitive OCT, and spectrally encoded endoscopy. The device supports video rate 2D and 3D volume scans at ultra-high resolution.

The device supports video rate 2D and 3D volume scans at ultra-high resolution through a combination of ultra-broad spectral bandwith and powerful, highly polarized output from the single-mode fiber. The smooth and quasi Gaussian ultra-broad spectrum centered at 800 nm supports a theoretical limit of sub 2 μm in axial resolution. It is optimized for lowest optical noise and side-lope free coherence functions.

INTEGRAL OCT: Ultra broadband coherent light source

New system specifications !
+ Axial resolution limit: < 2 μm
+ Output power (ex fiber): > 40 mW
+ Center wavelength: 800 nm
+ Bandwidth @ 3 db: > 150 nm

The new INTEGRAL OCT is the 3rd generation of FEMTOLASERS' compact ultra broadband coherent light-sources. Applications include ultra high resolution OCT, imaging of individual cells and sub-cellular structures, ultra high speed 3D OCT, spectroscopic OCT, polarisation sensitive OCT, spectrally encoded endoscopy and non-destructive quality control.

Ultrahigh axial resolution of sub-2 μm supported

Video rate 2D and 3D volume scans at ultrahigh resolution are supported by the unique combination of ultrabroad spectral bandwith and the powerful and highly polarized output from the S/M fiber. The smooth and quasi Gaussian ultrabroad spectrum centered at 800 nm supports a theoretical limit of sub 2 μm in axial resolution. Optimized for lowest optical noise and side-lope free coherence functions the INTEGRAL OCT is the best light-source for high-end OCT imaging and functional OCT.

Ease of Operation & Integration

The INTEGRAL OCT supports full integrablity to your setup. The INTEGRAL OCT output is coupled into a standard commercial single mode fiber, ensuring maximum ease of use and compatibility with other systems.

Stability & Reliability

The INTEGRAL OCT is best suited for high-end OCT imaging and supports ultrahigh resolution and fast scanning at the same time enabled by its extraordinary wide and smooth spectrum, paired with the uniquely high output power, which offers a clear advantage. Owing to the fact, that DM-controlled systems provide more bandwith without the need of nonlinear broadening or supercontinuum generation, unprecedented low noise and reproducibility of the output parameters are guaranteed.
