MEMS-VCSEL Swept-Source Laser Engine for OCT

Turn-Key MEMS-VCSEL Swept Source Module

MEMS-VCSEL Swept Source Module

Our partner Thorlabs is now selling 1310nm MEMS-VCSEL Swept-Source modules, along with full OCT systems utilizing the MEMS-VCSEL as the optical source.  The MEMS-VCSEL module makes unprecedented resolution and imaging speeds available to researchers.  The module is designed specifically for high-speed, high-resolution imaging via swept-source OCT (SS-OCT).

The module produces a 100 kHz or 200 kHz rapidly-swept laser output at >25 mW, swept from about 1250 nm – 1350 nm (100 nm tuning).  This widely-tuned laser output has been shown to have a coherence length of over 200 meters [Jnl. of Lightwave Tech. v33 (16)], enabling long-range OCT imaging [Optics Letters v38 (5) pp.673].
