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.
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.
Santec oﬀers a high speed Data Acquisition (DAQ) Board compatible with our high performance swept source laser. A patented rescaling algorithm is encoded into the FPGA for the real-time OCT image processing.
IFM-100 and IFM-200 are an Mach-Zehnder interferometer modules. The conﬁgurations are typically customized based on each customer’s OCT system configuration and can include PS-OCT. The IFM-100/200 can include features such as adding a visible laser as an imaging guide as well as electrically controlled optical delay line. Santec can also supply OEM customers with custom solutions including Michelson or Fizeau interferometers.
Santec’s Inner Vision software is supplied with all of its IVS SS-OCT systems. It includes 1D, 2D, 3D and imaging modes together with the ability to save image data as well as the raw OCT data. All functionality is available in Santec’s SDK (software development kit) for programming in C++, C# and LabView.
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.

Santec's Multi Slice Viewer provides advanced analysis capabilities for 3D data (raw data exported from IVS-2000). The simultaneous analysis of all X-Y-Z plane data can provide a better understanding of image data. This powerful tool assists in the extraction of detailed information from data-sets and quantiﬁes the 3D image content.
