Space-division Multiplexing Optical Coherence Tomography
Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, United States
High imaging speed is greatly desired for optical coherence tomography (OCT). We developed a space-division multiplexing OCT (SDM-OCT) technology that can achieve over an order of magnitude speed improvement using commercially available components. SDM-OCT preserves image resolution and sensitivity, and allows synchronized cross-sectional and three-dimensional (3D) imaging of biological samples.
Primary Application Area: Medical Devices
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: For manufacturers of OCT devices who want to gain and maintain market leadership by providing the fastest OCT technology, SDM-OCT is a novel, patent-pending technological breakthrough that offers over an order of magnitude speed improvement while preserving image resolution using parallel imaging at a negligible unit cost.
