Accessories & Software

Santec provides all of the components necessary to build a complete Swept-Source OCT (SS-OCT). These are quality products manufactured to exacting standards for use in our OEM products and implemented in medical qualified and industrial applications. The products can be used outside of OCT for a variety of sensor applications including LiDAR.
We also provides a number of software and image analysis tools. OCT Software Development Kit (SDK) and sample programs are available for users that seek software customization. We have the capability to provide custom OCT image analysis tools for defect detection using A.I. algorithms. Image visualization software for 2-D and 3-D images are also available.

OCT Grade Balanced Photo Detector

BPD-200

A balanced photo detector provides an electric output that corresponds to the difference between two optical signals. This detection method is the standard in SS-OCT and reduces common mode noise due to the laser power fluctuation. Our BPD-200 has been specially developed for OCT applications with low back-reflection and flat balanced response to reduce undesired image artifacts. BPD-200 yields a 3 dB sensitivity advantage when detecting the signal inverted in phase between two input signals and can be used in most heterodyne measurement systems.

【Features】
  • Wide dynamic range (DC to 80, 200 or 400 MHz)
  • Flat balanced level
  • High reliability, gain and linearity
  • Specially designed for artifact reduction

【Applications】
  • Swept Source-OCT
  • Heterodyne measurement
  • OFDR (optical frequency domain reflectometry)

【Performance】
  • Wavelength range: 950 nm - 1600 nm
  • Frequency response: 80 MHz, 200 MHz or 400 MHz
  • Maximum input power: 20 mW (10mW for 400 MHz version)

OCT Image Viewer

OCT 3D Viewer

Santecʼs OCT Viewer software has been specifically designed for viewing OCT images in 3D. Clear and striking images are generated by simply importing the OCT data. The image can be rotated, trimmed and contrast adjusted using a variety of settings. This enables features to be optimized for image analysis. Images can be animated and saved to create impressive presentations showing the all aspects of the 3D image as the settings are adjusted.

【Functions】
  • Zoom-in / out

  • Drag / move
  • Addition of frames
  • Trimming (clipping), rotation
  • Leveling of clipping plane from any point of view
  • Segmentation (Isolation of desired part) *1
  • Contrast setting, transparency and rendering
  • Color histogram display
  • Export as bitmap file or movie file (option)
  • Simple data loading from Santec's IVS systems
