ISS-OCT system IVS-2000 (1700nm)

SS-OCT(Swept Source-Optical Coherence Tomography).
This year we announce a new version of our fully customizable SS-OCT system; we have extended the range to include a 1700nm version. The IVS-2000 has been deployed to a broad range of applications in research, feasibility studies and product development in medical and industrial fields. The new system at 1700nm joins our SS-OCT range that includes systems at 1050nm, 1300nm, and 1550nm, optimized for speed, resolution and image depth.

  • 1700nm wavelength range
  • High speed A-line and Deep imaging
  • Industrial and Biomedical application


New! Electrically Pumped Tunable VCSEL, HSL-1

Santec is pleased to introduce the latest addition to our range of tunable lasers for spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography. The HSL-1 is an electrically pumped VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser).
The laser has a number of features intrinsic to VCSELs that makes it an attractive source for SS-OCT, including large coherence length, variable scan speed and low signal noise. The HSL-1 has been designed with system integration in mind; a compact, efficient package the laser is also robust, reliable and suitable for mass production.

  • 1060nm wavelength range
  • Single Mode Lasing:
    Ultra Long Coherence Length
  • Flexible Scanning Rate,
    Tuning Range, and Direction
  • Coherence Revival and
    Mode Competition Noise Free


New! Super-flatness of λ/40 is available in optical visible wavelength

SLM-100 (spatial light modulator) based on LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) device supports super-flatness of λ/40 @633nm using wavefront correction technology.

  • High resolution:
    10-bit (1024 gray levels)
  • Excellent phase stability: < 0.002 π rad
  • Super-flatness: < λ/40 @633nm


New! Ultra-Wideband Source UWS-2000

Santec’s UWS-2000 range of light sources emit what is known as Supercontinuum Light. The optical properties are similar to laser light with high coherence but with the advantage of an ultra-wideband optical spectrum.

  • High output power: > 0.8W total power
  • Ultra-wide band: 450nm – 2400nm
  • Spectrum power density:
    > -10dBm/nm
  • Spectrum stability: < ±0.1dB
