What are SS OCT Lasers and Systems used for?
Swept source OCT (SS OCT) is a type of laser that uses short-cavity swept lasers instead of the traditional superluminescent diode lasers in spectral domain OCT( SD-OCT). These types of lasers use a wavelength centered at approximately 1 µm but ultimately changes while scanning as it sweeps through a narrow band of wavelengths to achieve higher imaging speeds at higher resolutions. Additionally, SS-OCT lasers and systems are capable of providing uniform sensitivity over the entire scan window, which produces images of deeper areas in each sample (for instance, the vitreous retina and other deep structures inside the eye) in a single scan.
