Santec’s Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography System (SS-OCT) provides a complete, flexible solution which can be used for a wide range of applications, both medical and industrial. Components can be selected to optimize the imaging speed, resolution, imaging area and depth for each application. The system is supplied with a graphic user interface (GUI) that controls the scan parameters and displays both cross sectional and 3D images. An API is available as an option, for integration with other equipment and image analysis automation. We also supports the hardware and software customization where appropriate.
Non-contact, non-destructive, non-invasive imaging system
1-D, 2-D & 3-D measurement capability
Choice of light sources and probes to optimize imaging conditions
Up to 400 kHz A-scan rate
GUI with Image, intensity, time lapse and raw data output
IVS-1000-VCSEL uses Santecʼs Tunable VCSEL light source operating at 1060 nm. This wavelength is particularly suitable for imaging samples with a high water content and is widely used for ophthalmic applications. The laser has a long coherence length, this opens up many imaging applications which require an large depth of field. A final feature of the system is that the acquisition speed can be modiﬁed via software, which provides flexibility to adjust the imaging range.
IVS-2000-HR has been developed for applications requiring high axial resolution. A selection of probes are available to optimize the scan range and lateral resolution providing the finest detail for each application. This system is well suited to skin imaging for both dermatology and cosmetic research.
High-resolution skin imaging for cosmetic research
Industrial imaging with high resolution and accuracy
IVS-2000-HS is optimized to provide rapid imaging using the 1310 nm wavelength. Combined with the low-scattering coeﬃcient at this wavelength, the IVS-2000-HS provides the high contrast and deeper imaging of high scattering materials. In addition, this model is particularly attractive for in-line inspection and monitoring systems.
IVS-2000-LC uses the MEMS based scanning laser with a 50kHz scan and long coherence length. This provides a imaging range of over >18 mm in air. The fast data acquisition and extended depth imaging capability make this system suitable for industrial imaging applications as well as precise measurements of 3-D surfaces.
IVS-2000-ST operates at 1310 nm and provides a balanced combination of performance characteristics for general imaging applications. It is particularly suitable as a laboratory instrument as well as integration into industrial imaging systems. These applications will benefit from the high measurement accuracy, stable performance and aﬀordability.
