Optical Coherence tomography

Improve your Axial Resolution

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution and deep-penetration 3D imaging technique. Medical applications are numerous and include ophthalmology, cardiology, oncology, and biological imaging. Industrial applications include inspection of multi-layered thin-film products, plastic welds, and detection of surface and subsurface defects and delamination in ceramics and 3D printed parts.

Used to verify dimensions of molds, and final parts, OCT can provide real-time process feedback for control and dimensional analysis during laser machining, and additive manufacturing. OCT is also used to inspect critical coatings in the automotive, aerospace, and aviation sectors.

BeST-SLED®  is an ideal light source for OCT applications. Our broader spectrum, improves axial resolution over traditional light sources. BeST-SLED®  - the compact, powerful, cost-effective solution. Available with up to 6 Superluminescent diodes in one optical package. Single mode fiber optic output is spectrally stitched, providing broad spectrum up to 480nm FWHM.
