Swept Light Sources

Inphenix’s Swept Light Sources offer deep penetration, long coherence length and high resolution. Based on Inphenix’s leading Semiconductor Optical Amplifier technology, Inphenix’s frequency swept tunable laser is specifically designed for Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT) and Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) applications. Inphenix’s Swept Sources are available in 1060nm, 1310nm and 1550nm windows and are ideal for OEM integration. We look forward to meeting your standard or customized specifications.

Notes:

* A-scan rate (bidirectional sweeping). Lower A-scan rate swept source also available.

** The coherence length (in air) is the optical path length difference at which the interference fringe visibility drops 50% (or the OCT sensitivity falls 6dB) compared to the zero optical path length difference. The imaging depth is half of the coherence length.

Additional note: 1) k-clock available. 2) Sweep duty cycle is 80 to 100%.
