Thorlabs' Atria™ Series 1060 nm OCT Imaging System

Thorlabs' Atria™ Series 1060 nm OCT Imaging Systems provide the flexibility required for ultra-long-range imaging applications with high resolution. The MEMS-VCSEL source used in these swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) systems produces light with a much longer coherence length than broadband sources, enabling stronger backscattered signals at longer imaging depths.

MEMS-VCSEL Swept-Source Laser Engine for OCT

Our partner Thorlabs is now selling 1310nm and 1050nm 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). This widely-tuned laser output has been shown to have a coherence length of over 200 meters , enabling long-range OCT imaging.
