Bio-medical imaging systems including optical coherence tomography and spectroscopy, depending on applications, may require light sources of varying performance combinations in spectral range, coherence length, resolution, sweep speed, and power. As a company with a vertically integrated core platform, Micron Optics provides an array of technology solutions ranging from component-level optical filter designs, to module level functionalities, and high performance swept laser system integration. With well-protected IPs and the inherent fiber-optic platform for compact embodiment, Micron Optics tunable filter technology enables numerous bio-medical imaging applications.
Micron Optics swept lasers have demonstrated real-time monitoring and superior signal-to-noise ratio measurements in optical frequency domain imaging and near-IR spectroscopy. Today, the Micron Optics innovative swept laser system forms the core platform in swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT), which offers 100 times better resolution than ultrasound technique. Such performance enables various pre-clinical and clinical applications including in-vivo diagnosis of pathological diseases and early cancer formation in human tissue, 3-dimensional mapping, real-time intrasurgical guidance, drug discovery and genomics.
