Introducing the fastest VCSEL Swept Source to market

Fast 3D imaging with MHz VCSEL Swept Source

OCTLIGHT is extending the Caliper product family with the new Caliper-HERO which is the fastest available scalable solution for 3D OCT imaging on the market. It is based on the truly single-mode wavelength tuning VCSEL technology. The patented Highly Efficient Resonant Oscillator (HEROTM) achieves blazing MHz speeds and single channel acquisition. This pushes the performance that can be achieved in e.g. blood flow imaging, wider field of view imaging and real-time 3D imaging for robotic surgery with a clear path for translation into commercial product benefitting ophthalmologists and patients.

Caliper-HERO is a natural extension of the Eurostars project BLINK which demonstrated MHz imaging stable enough for k-space remapping. In this way the conventional k-clock signal and additional digitizer channel required is avoided. This makes high throughput OCT imaging possible using just a single digitizer acquisition channel and digital signal processing architecture. The BLINK project with partners Prof. Christoph Meyer, Bern University of Applied Sciences and Prof. MD. Lars Michael Larsen, Glostrup Hospital, has provided an excellent starting point demonstrating an MHz SS-OCT setup with state-of-the-art digitizers.

Available to innovators today, ready for scaling up tomorrow

The Caliper-HERO module will be available today with 1.7 MHz A-scan rates and 40-50 nm wavelength tuning range. Based on the Caliper product platform the module has built-in safety features for integration in clinical prototypes and A-scan trigger for synchronization to beam scanners.

The module is ready from lab setups to clinical prototypes. The scalable platform builds on proven VCSEL technology providing a clear path towards commercialization of ultrafast OCT devices.

We will be present at the online event PHOTONICS+ Virtual Exhibition and Conference, in partnership with EPIC, which will be taking place 17-18/2-2021. We look forward to update current customers on our progress and meet new to discuss applications of our OCT Swept Source.

VCSEL OCT Swept Source enable ranging and imaging at millimeter to meter ranges at kHz to MHz repetition rates. For Ophthalmic imaging this enables fast wide-field/angiography imaging of the retina and whole-eye imaging for biometry.

Across the world we have all had to adopt to online communcation. We hope to see you at this opportunity to engange in discussions regarding our VCSEL based Swept Source technology.

Approach us to discuss if you are looking to integrate a small form-factor Swept Source with kHz imaging rate and 25 nm tuning range at 1060 nm in your next project. Available both as benchtop turn-key and module for integration. The module has been tested to CE standards and includes a safety interlock for medical imaging.

At the event you can also hear more about our upcoming module with MHz imaging rate. Go 10X faster and enable new features for your customers.

OCTLIGHT engineers are currently putting the final touch on the second pilot series production of Caliper OEM modules. The modules are assembled as soon as PCB and TOSA-VCSELs have passed inspection and testing. After assembly the modules are tested with all optical components fiber coupled before fiber splicing. Then the modules are subjected to the final testing against specifications. The modules will go out to different parts of the world by the end of this summer.

OCTLIGHT has been selected to the Photonics Programme, which is the predecessor to the European Photonics Venture Forum. Through the program OCTLIGHT will work to refine strategies and look for new opportunities for leveraging its innovative tunable VCSEL technology platform. The program is aligned with OCTLIGHT mission to transform our technology into solutions that will make our society healthier, happier, and more sustainable.

OCTLIGHT breakthrough technology is already available as the product Caliper targeted at the Ophthalmic application of eye biometry. Get in contact today to discuss your needs for tunable single-mode, long-coherence length and kHz-MHz interferometric applications. To support our future product roadmap we are very interested to get in touch with system integrators about your future needs and applications using this Key Enabling Technology build out of the European world leading Photonics community.

The EU project NETLAS, which officialy began in February, was kicked off with a meeting between the beneficiaries and partners at Kent University in Canterbury the 20th of February 2020.

OCTLIGHT is a partner in the project and will participate with its innovative VCSEL OCT Swept Source technology especially focused on the application of Ophthalmology.

The project is aimed at developing new talents and educating future European industry leaders within the next generation within 12 different technologies. OCTLIGHT will aid as an example of novel optics configurations for tuneable lasers for sensing and imaging.

The institution at which OCTLIGHT’s technology has been developed, the Technical University of Denmark, will be a direct beneficiary of the NETLAS project, among others. We look forward to contributing to this important effort.
