Complete SS-OCT Systems
IVS-1000(1060 nm) -2000(1310 nm) -4000(1700 nm)

Santec has been an innovator for SS-OCT technology since the launch of our first swept source OCT unit in 2004. We bring a wealth of expertise backed up with a wide selection of hardware and software to address most all applications of SS-OCT, in medical, industrial and scientific fields. A SS-OCT system from Santec can accelerate your product development, help you gather rare, difficult-to-see images of features all with customized performance to meet your needs. Santec is the most flexible supplier of complete SS-OCT systems in the world, with a wider range of lasers, software modifications and probe hardware.

Recent additions to our SS-OCT system line-up includes a low-scatter 1.7 micron system for improved depth imaging in dense media, as well as a long coherence length system for high speed remote surface profiling. We continue to widen our scope of SS-OCT applications from medical diagnostics to in-situ industrial non-destructive testing.

IVS-2000 Brochure

University of California, Irvine (UCI) has published their first paper using our 1.7 micron swept source.
Shows promise for cardio-OCT: “significantly improved imaging depth and better identification sensitivity” when compared to 1.3 micron imaging.
